How to get to PolyU ? (useful if you are NOT staying at offered  accommodation facilities)

By the KCR (Kowloon-Canton Railway 九廣鐵路)

The KCR is a commuter railway that runs from Kowloon to the mainland China boundary. Get off at the Hung Hom Station (紅磡站), which is the terminus of the KCR East Rail in the Kowloon side. You may see the university logo on the signs in the station. Follow this symbol and other instructions to get to the bridge connecting between the station and the campus. (The closest exit in the station is Exit A.) When you reach the campus by using the bridge, go straight. Then you can see the lawn as shown in above pictures (set in 1).

By the MTR (Mass Transit Railway 地下鐵路)

The MTR runs along Hong Kong Island's northern coastline and travels beneath the harbor where branches serve Kowloon and Lantau Island (大嶼山). Change at the Kowloon Tong Station (九龍塘站) for the KCR trains to Hung Hom.

By taxi

You can get off at the vehicle entrance near to the Fountain Square (see the pictures in set 2 above), which is in the southern part of the campus (near Cores A, B, and C).

By car

If you drive to the campus and need free parking, contact the registration desk for parking coupons. Overnight parking is not allowed.
