In celebration of its Golden Jubilee, CUHK opened the University Gallery on 28 November. Through the display of hundreds of precious photographs, artefacts, and multimedia resources, the gallery exhibits the history, memorable moments and achievements of CUHK in the past 50 years, events which often mirror developments in Hong Kong.

The University Gallery was built with a generous donation from the T S Kwok Foundation. Dr. Raymond P.L. Kwok, representative of the T S Kwok Foundation, and Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung, Vice-Chancellor of CUHK, officiated at the opening ceremony. Professor Sung said, 'The gallery will take us on a walk through the key milestones of the University's history, the good times and the tough times, the evolution of cultural heritage and education philosophy, and to meet the great people of CUHK.'

Located at the main entrance of the University Library, the gallery comprises seven zones across two storeys, including milestones through the decades, the first years, the ideas and practice of whole-person education, outstanding scholars, China studies, overseas collaborations, and stories of CU people.
