School location

The campus is located in Kowloon Tong, Kowloon. Kowloon is located on the peninsula to the north of Hong Kong Island. With over 2.1 million people living in an area of less than 47 square kilometers, Kowloon is one of the most densely populated places on the planet, and has a matching array of places to shop, eat and sleep. “Kowloon side,” as it is often known, managed to escape some of the British colonial influences that characterize the “Hong Kong Island” side. Kowloon is a less touristy part of Hong Kong; therefore less English is spoken, and prices overall tend to be less expensive.
