Opening hours

 

 Opening  Hours

As announced by the HKU Task Force on Infectious Diseases on 23 July 2020:

“In light of the current sustained transmissions in the community and with a view to reducing the possibility of infection on campus, the University has decided to extend for another week from July 27 to August 2, 2020 the existing arrangements as set out in the Task Force’s bulk email dated July 19, 2020, in terms of work arrangements, face-to-face teaching, and campus facilities and services.”

In view of the latest precautionary measures introduced by the Government, the Libraries will reduce the level of services including opening hours and restrict access to current HKU/HKU SPACE students and staff until further notice.

For infection control, all users other than current HKU/HKU Space Staff/Students are required to register to enter the Main Library. HKU Graduates, External Members and holders of JULAC Library Cards click here for details.

Please check our latest opening hours on https://lib.hku.hk/general/hours/index.html or contact respective service points/offices https://lib.hku.hk/general/contactus_staff.html for enquiries or available services.
