Regions/Asia/Welcome to HKUST


iGEM Europe

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology will be hosting iGEM Asia 2012 and the entire competition will take place at our stunning main campus at Clear Water Bay, where most of the venues for the activities are housed under one roof within the inter-connected academic building. We look forward to your participation and support to make this a most memorable and successful event!

Transportation: How to get around

Public transportation in Hong Kong is very efficient and getting to and from HKUST by taxi , the MTR metro, or bus is easy, as is accessible by car. The map shows you the main routes connecting Kowloon and Hong Kong Island to our campus. The main gate of the campus features a large and easily recognizable sign with the university's name written in both English and Chinese. Past the main gate, a gently sloping driveway leads to the Entrance Piazza with a large red sundial at its center.
