Fourth Station/ The University of Hong Kong
Address/ 90 Bonham Road
The University of Hong Kong is a prestigious university in Hong Kong. Its campus is built on the hillside stretching from Sai Ying Pun to Pok Fu Lam. The university was established in 1912, and English was adopted as the medium of instruction to spread the influence of English in the Far East.
It was not until 1925, when events like the Canton-Hong Kong strike took place, that the colonial government started to actively promote the Chinese-western cultural exchange. Funds were raised from local Chinese businessmen to build and establish the Chinese School within the university in 1927. Eventually, the Chinese School and the Chinese library were built on the hills of Sai Ying Pun, known today as the Fung Ping Shan Building and Tang Chi Ngong Building respectively.
