There are around 1,400 students in Lee Woo Sing College, in which 85% of them are local, 15% of them are non-local (including international and mainland Chinese students). Comparing to large-size Colleges (around 3000 students) and small-size Colleges (300-600 students), our College size is moderate and perfect for student development. Students coming from different faculties, cultural backgrounds, ages can make friends with each other in hostels and College events and learn from each other easily. Under this scale of student community, resource for students is optimal and less-competitive among students as well.
There are three Dean of Students/ Associate Deans of Students/ Dean of General Education in the College. The College can effectively cater the needs of students, including learning support, counseling and whole-person education, so as to exercise our strength of student care. On top of the Deans, there are around 100 affiliated teachers from different faculties and departments serving the College. The teacher-student ratio is about 1:15.College size is moderate and perfect for student care and development.
"Lee Woo Sing College is the home of WS-ers in CUHK. We hope students can gain a comprehensive College experience in a harmonious and caring environment, cultivate a positive attitude towards life, and achieve personal growth in the WS community. We welcome every student to come back frequently, on one hand to make good use of College facilities, and on the other hand, to participate in diversified activities and training programs to explore personal potential and expand social networks. Let's Meet friends, Do things, Create impact @ WS together."

We welcome students from all backgrounds, no matter they are academic high-flyers; talented in arts and sports; good at social and communication skills; proficient event organizers; kind-hearted ones dedicated to serve the community; yearned for a greener life...
