The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex | The University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus in Hong Kong is home to faculty, graduate students and undergraduates working and studying in Hong Kong since it opened its doors in 2018. With the institutional support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust as well as support from alumni, parents and friends, led by University Trustee Francis Tin Fan Yuen and his wife, Rose Wai Man Lee Yuen, the campus is a hub for ambitious research, education and collaboration in Hong Kong, China and Asia, building upon the University’s rich history of scholarship in the region.
The Hong Kong campus houses The University of Chicago Booth School of Business Executive MBA Program Asia and its Executive Education non-degree courses for professionals, as well as the University’s first undergraduate study abroad program in Hong Kong.

The campus is built on the historically important site at Mount Davis, which includes The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Campus housing The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Heritage Courtyard and Interpretation Centre that will be open to the public in December.
