External Group Booking

HKU supports community sports participation and welcomes schools making bookings at our sports facilities especially during non-peak hours (08:00-16:30) on weekdays. Occasionally, HKU will allow organizations to run major events at peak hours. The incomes generated will be used to support the facilities operations as well as HKU sports centres’ future developments.

Bookings can normally be made as early as 3 weeks prior to the event date. For hirers who wish to make bookings more than 3 weeks in advance of the event date, please call or email the booking officer to seek approval from the Management first. Such bookings will be subject to at least 10% surcharge to the hiring fee. Additional surcharges will apply to bookings with special requests in venue setup, and based on factors like catering service, scale of event, use of special equipment, number of attendees, etc. Waiver to any fee requires justification and hirers may be asked to provide relevant documents to support the requests.

School/Organization which is the first time wishing to hire our sports facilities can check out the list of facilities and the scale of charges first, and then send a Booking Inquiry specifying the needs to the Booking Officer at csebooking.officer@hku.hk or call them during office hours (0900-1230 & 1400-1700) at 3910 3558. For returning hirers, please check the venues’ availability before submitting an application via the External Group Online Booking System (EGOBS).

Same as centrally administered facilities in the HKU Main Campus, booking requests from external groups will be considered on a case-by-case basis, provided that the intended activities do not infringe the law. Approval is given only in exceptional circumstances. In general, appeal against rejection of application will not be accepted.
The following application forms are only used when the hirer cannot use the External Group Online Booking System (EGOBS):
External Booking Form (updated on Feb 2023)
Climbing Wall Booking Form (updated on Feb 2023)
For mega event, package price instead of normal scale of charges may apply.
