兆龍樓的昔與今 Sui Loong Pao Building – Then and Now
In the past month, units of the Bursary were busy moving into Sui Loong Pao Building from different places of the Central Campus. The whole removal process was completed on 24 October, when the last unit, Accounting Operations and Systems Unit, moved to this 40-year-old building.
The construction of the four-storey Sui Loong Pao Building was completed in late 1977 with a donation of over HK $3 million from Sir Yue-kong Pao, a renowned businessman. In appreciation of Sir Pao’s generosity, the building was named after his father Mr. Sui Loong Pao. Witnessed by over a hundred honoured guests, Sui Loong Pao Building was officially opened on 12 January 1978 by Lord Murray MacLehose, then Hong Kong Governor.
In the early days Sui Loong Pao Building housed the Faculty of Business Administration and the Public Affairs Research Centre, and used to be the temporary office of the Faculty of Medicine. In 1992 the Building became the Registry office. In 2014 the Registry moved out and in 2017 Sui Loong Pao Building was converted to the Bursary office.
