The Universities Service Centre for China Studies (USC) has become a constituent unit of the Institute of Chinese Studies (ICS) from 1 April 2013. The USC (formerly named as the Universities Service Centre) was established in 1963. It joined CUHK in 1988 and was renamed Universities Service Centre for China Studies in 1993. Currently led by Prof. Chan Kin-man, USC organizes regular luncheon talks and informal gatherings with the objective of encouraging intellectual exchange among Hong Kong, mainland Chinese and international scholars. The USC also provides library services with an extensive and accessible collection of a great variety of materials on contemporary China.

In addition to USC, ICS constituent units include the Art Museum, the Research Centre for Translation, the Centre for Chinese Archaeology and Art, T.T.
