A Brotherhood of Men for Others !
About Hornell Hall

Hornell Hall (Chinese name: 康寧堂) is the first and only male undergraduate and graduate non-residential hall at The University of Hong Kong (HKU). Hornell Hall was founded on the 24th of September in 1953 and was named after Sir William Hornell, former Vice-Chancellor of HKU.


Hornell is characterized by its long history, traditions, and brotherhood among past and current members who had led the way in many sport and socially-conscious activities at HKU.

Our hall is "unique" and "cutting-edge". Working alongside alumni and student members, Hornell Hall provides amazing life experiences that are unrivaled !
