How to get to HKU's Grand Hall

By MTR: take the West Island Line and get off at the HKU Station, both Exit C1 and Exit A will take you to the HKU Centennial Campus where the Grand Hall is located. 

By taxi: taxi drivers may not know where the Grand Hall is. The easiest way is to ask the driver to take you to Kotewall Road and enter via the entrance there. Afterwards, ask him to keep left and keep going downslope until you see the Haking Wong Podium where there is a restaurant. Get off there and walk westward towards the Centennial Campus, you will arrive at the Grand Hall after a few minutes.

Travelling time from Central or Admiralty to the main campus takes about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
