Thanks to the generous contribution from Lee family, our hall was named to be “Lee Hysan Hall”. Before the establishment of Lee Hysan Hall, one residential hall –“Old Halls” was being demolished. Lugard Wing was put down since 15th December 1990 while the May and Eliot Wing were closed on 19th June 1992. Old Halls’ warden, Prof Cheng Kai Ming became the first warden in our hall. Also, the first session of hallmates also came from Old Halls. As a result, it inherits some traditions from Old Halls such as “Village” system, Lion Dancing Team, the village name—“Dragon Lane” and the symbol of our hall – “Tiger”. Student Liaison Group was the rudimentary form of the Students’ Association in our hall. Elpis (弘希閣) is the 24th cabinet of the Students’ Association. Year 2012 is the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Lee Hysan Hall.
Lee Hysan Hall always aims at providing different platforms to complement the education of the University in achieving whole-person development. It is always our belief that hall is more than a place to provide accommodation. It should be a place for our growth, for maximizing our capacity and for learning to give-and-take. We aim at cultivating hallmates with a wide horizon who are contributive to the communities they live in.
Lee Hysan Hall is a home away from home. It is a community in which individuals are close and caring to each other. We treasure harmony as one of our core values, which arises out of mutual respect, compassion and understanding. Moreover, being initiative is an important quality among hysanians. We respect freedom and choice while demanding responsibility.
We can feel the unity and spirit of our hall in tears and sweat we shed when we are devoted to our Sports and Cultural teams. Our hall cry--- “Never fall. Beat You All. We are We are Hysan Hall” captures our hall’s spirit and shows our hallmates’ perseverance.
Here you are welcomed to many different opportunities to enrich yourselves. You can also get to know lifelong friends in the various units and activities you engage in. To live in Lee Hysan Hall is a valuable chance to ignite your life and passion.
To complement the education of the University in achieving whole-person development.

Our hall’s ‘village’ system is very unique among 16 halls. We describe the storey we live as ‘village’ (村) instead of ‘floor’. We call the people living on the same storey ‘villagers’(村民) instead of ‘floormates’. We believe that village is more like a family in which we can develop life-long relationship with our villagers. Through different hall activities and village activities, villagers develop solidarity and sense of belonging to their floor. In our hall, we have 12 villages. 8 of them are mixed villages in which male and female live on the same storey. 2 of them are female villages and 2 of them are male villages.
