The new Shaw Auditorium is home to HKUST's cultural activities and a new landmark for large scale events, providing new flexibilities and possibilities to create a vibrant arts and cultural scene at the University.

As a multi-purpose auditorium with a seating capacity of around 850 for concerts and over 1,300 in flat floor configurations, the venue can be used to host different kinds of events such as concerts, theater performances, lectures, exhibitions, and ceremonies.  There are also supporting facilities offering space for seminars, rehearsals, small-scale performances, and gatherings both indoors and outdoors.

We would like to sincerely thank the Shaw Foundation Hong Kong Limited’s generous HK$150 million donation which has made possible this impressive outcome before our eyes.
