The University’s Congregation is one of the most important events in the HKU calendar and a once-in-a-lifetime event for graduates.  It is the annual ceremony held by the University to officially confer the respective degrees on students who are eligible for graduation.

Instead of having one Congregation to confer degrees on Graduands of 10 Faculties, this year, the 191st Congregation for conferring degrees on the Class of 2014 will be held as Faculty-based sessions. Resources will be devoted to campus decorations and celebration activities to enable Graduands, their families and friends to enjoy the festivity on campus. 

Details of the Faculty-based Congregation sessions are as follows:

Permanent HKU Email Accounts for the Class of 2014

A permanent, web-based email service, HKU Connect, will be available to the Class of 2014 this summer.

Without having to login to HKU Portal for accessing, the HKU Connect is an outsourced email service running on the Google platform.  Since 2012, every new graduate will be given a permanent HKU Connect email account with 25GB disk space powered by Google mail.

HKU Connect email account will be automatically created for graduands, there is no need to apply for it.  This graduate account has the same name and initial password as the student account, ie, the same for accessing HKU Portal.  If your former student account/HKU Portal login is and password abcd1234, your graduate account name is with the same password abcd1234.

Members of the Class of 2014 can check their HKU emails via the HKU Portal until the end of August 2014. They will also receive notification from the Information Technology Service when their accounts are ready. Please access your graduate email accounts via and then click "CONNECT.HKU.HK".

Please keep checking your mail box to get the notices and reminders of important matters of the 191st Congregation and all other messages from the University.
