University-wide Orientation  

O’Venture

O’Venture is a new form of University-wide Orientation for freshmen to immerse in the HKUST community while having fun and joy like in a theme park. All first-year students will take part in activities, enjoy performances and have hands on experience in interesting workshops, according to their interest and time during the three days. All these are being brought to you by student groups and program organizers who you cannot miss. What’s more? You can get stamps after participating in the activities and workshops and redeem university souvenirs for free. Download our mobile app, smartUST, and follow our official Instagram @hkust.joruney here now.
