CUHK pledges her commitment to continuously improve the environmental quality of the campus, putting the principles of sustainable design at the heart of campus development.

With a vision to promote, respect and connect people with architecture and nature, the hostel development aimed at creating an eco-habitat for Green Living and Education. In the Green Hostel Village, communal facilities were designed into clusters of various sizes and scales, giving an interesting fabric of community mall, open spaces, gardens and intimate courtyards to enrich user interactions and living experience. 

Green Building technologies were fully adopted to maximize energy efficiency:  Solar panels were installed to preheat water for the shower rooms, and rainwater recycling system re-used the water for irrigation. Through the greywater treatment system, wastewater from washing basins and shower rooms was re-used for flushing. Sky gardens and green roofs were also designed to reduce the heat island effect and to promote experimental farming in the habitat. These eco-friendly facilities helped to save annual water consumption up to about 38% and reduce energy usage by over 30% during the peak in summer. In recognition of its sustainable design and energy efficiency, the project was honored with Platinum rating under the BEAM Plus New Buildings [V1.2] assessment.
