Remarks:

for men only


Hornell Hall is the first and only male non-residential hall at HKU. It was founded on the 24th of September in 1953 and was named after Sir William Hornell, former Vice-Chancellor of HKU. With the motto “It’s not with stone we build our hall, but with united strength of all”, Hornell is characterized by its long history, traditions, and brotherhood among past and current members. There is also the strong connection between alumni and student members.

Our hall is “unique” and “cutting-edge”. Hornell Hall provides a relaxing environment to hallmates. It is equipped with TV, PS4, computers, sofa, band equipment, comics, and study room. A wide range of activities are organized, such as sports, socially-conscious activities, study tours (including Japan and Korea recently, which were well received by hallmates), etc. Both undergraduate and postgraduate students are welcomed to join us. Hornell Hall provides amazing life experiences that are unrivalled!
