Today, the University Hall spirit of fraternity, loyalty and trust is more important than ever. For at no time has the University’s future success been so dependent on the support of those who believe in it, and who treasure what HKU stands for. Generation after generation of Castlers have continued to uphold the outstanding spirit of loyalty to their Hall and to the University.

With its architectural excellence, the castle remains the west “Out Post” of HKU. The past half a century saw over 2,000 “Castlers” spending unforgettably happy times in University Hall before assuming key positions in the society. Every “U Hallite” or “Castler” has a common and unique character, the “U-Hall Spirit”, which is the tight brotherhood bondage towards excellence and unfailing support to U Hall.
