The Chinese University of Hong Kong, commonly referred to as CUHK, is the second oldest university in Hong Kong; it is campus-based and also the only collegiate university in the territory. The motto of the university is "Chinese: 博文約禮" in Chinese, meaning "to broaden one's intellectual horizon and keep within the bounds of propriety".
The university's founders hoped that it would become the bridge that connects China and the West, and to combine tradition with modernity. 
CUHK comprises four colleges: Chung Chi College, New Asia College, United College, and Shaw College. All undergraduates are affiliated to one of them. Currently, five new colleges are to be established in the near future; namely Morningside College  , S. H. Ho College , C. W. Chu College, Wu Yee Sun College and Lee Woo Sing College.
Colleges are congenial communities with their own hostels, dining halls and other facilities. Students receive pastoral care and whole-person education, including formal and non-formal general education by means like interacting closely with teachers and peers. Colleges are active promoters of various extracurricular activities. They are also important platforms for discussions and friendships.
In 2005, The Chinese University of Hong Kong's budget was HK$4,558 million, with government subventions of about HK$2,830 million. 
The University's School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCS) was established in 1965 under the name of the Department of Extramural Studies. In January 2006, the School was renamed the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. Bearing the mission of providing quality continuing professional education programmes and services to meet the changing needs of society, the School offers a diverse range of courses and programs at different levels.
The university library system houses the Hong Kong Studies Archive, Hong Kong Literature Collection, Chinese Overseas Collection, Nobel Laureate GAO, Xingjian Collection, Nobel Laureate CY Yeung Archive, American Studies Resource Collection and Modern Chinese Drama Collection, which highlight the distinctive CUHK stock of literature in Hong Kong.
CUHK also houses The Chinese University of Hong Kong Art Museum, which houses "a wide range of artifacts illuminating the rich arts, humanities and cultural heritage of ancient and pre-modern China."

There are nine main faculties at CUHK:
Each faculty regulates different undergraduate degrees accordingly.
New Asia--Yale-in-China Chinese Language Center (CLC)was founded in 1963 under the joint auspices of New Asia College and the Yale-China Association, the Center became part of The Chinese University in 1974 and has been responsible for the teaching of one language education (Putonghua and Cantonese) of University students as well as other Putonghua and Cantonese learners. Courses are offered in two different series namely (i) for non-native speakers and (ii) for native speakers of Chinese. All the series have different levels to meet the needs and aptitude of students.
University Programs are divided into (a) Putonghua Courses for Local Students (b) Cantonese Courses for Mainland Chinese Students amd (c) Putonghua and Cantonese Courses for International Exchange Students
Programs are provided to public as well in 2 difference streams namely (a) Putonghua/ Cantonese courses for non-native speakers (Chinese as a foreign language/second language, CFL), and (b) Putonghua/ Cantonese courses for native Chinese speakers.
There are many artworks on the campus; mostly representing Chinese culture, such as the Statue of Confucius and the Lion Pavilion near the Chung Chi College, the Ming De Mural near the United College.
Although the campus is located away from the busier districts in Hong Kong, access to campus is relatively quick and easy. The university connects itself with the other districts of the city via well-established public transportation system in Hong Kong.

Due to high demand, only about half of CU students are offered a dormitory room. There are a total of 23 dormitory halls, each of which belongs to one of the four colleges. There are also six additional halls for graduate students.
