香港大學是香港著名學府,其校園建立在西營盤至薄扶林一帶的山腰之上。學校於1912年成立,起初以英語為教學語言,藉以擴大英語在遠東的影響力。直至1925年省港大罷工等事件出現,政府積極推動香港的中西文化交流,便向本地華籍商人籌款於1927年成立中文學院,最終於西營盤的山上建設了中文學院及中文圖書館,即今天的鄧志昂樓及馮平山樓。

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.
