大學站 University Station

1956年,崇基學院搬到馬料水現址建校辦學,九廣鐵路特別為崇基學院新設馬料水車站。1967年1月1日,馬料水車站改稱為大學站,至今服務中大人及市民半個世紀。

值得一提是,在2000年代,港鐵發展西港島綫,其中一站連接香港大學。由於香港大學是香港第一所大學,遂引起兩大學生於網上爭論「大學」站一名誰屬,最終東鐵綫「大學」站名維持不變。

In 1956, Chung Chi College moved to its permanent site in Ma Liu Shui. A train station, called Ma Liu Shui Station, was built to serve the College. From 1 January 1967 Ma Liu Shui Station was renamed ‘University Station’, and so this year the Station is turning 50.

It is worth mentioning that in 2000s the MTR Corporation proposed the West Island Line and one of the stations was planned to serve the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Since HKU is the first university of Hong Kong, student groups of CUHK and HKU had debated online claiming the naming rights of ‘University Station’. Eventually the name was reserved to CUHK.
