About Savannah College of Art and Design (Hong Kong)
SCAD Hong Kong is located in Sham Shui Po in the northwestern section of the Kowloon Peninsula. One of the earliest developed districts in Hong Kong, Sham Shui Po is characterized by a mix of residential buildings with government, institutional and community facilities.
The modern, nine-story Dragon Centre shopping mall is located within a few blocks of SCAD Hong Kong and features an indoor roller coaster and skating rink, in addition to hundreds of shops and restaurants. Street markets in the area are known for offering inexpensive electronics and computer equipment, garment construction items, office supplies, flowers and miscellaneous products.
SCAD revitalized the historic North Kowloon Magistracy building, a former courthouse, into the leading site for the study of art and design in Asia, while honoring the structure’s historic and cultural significance.
SCAD Hong Kong and Moot Gallery are in the former North Kowloon Magistracy Building located at 292 Tai Po Road in Sham Shui Po. Modes of transportation to SCAD are as follows:
- MTR: Hong Kong has one of the most efficient and affordable transportation systems in the world. The MTR (Mass Transit Railway) has 10 lines covering all of the major districts in Hong Kong. MTR stops for SCAD facilities include Sham Shui Po and Tsuen Wan.
- Buses, trams, taxis and ferries: An extensive network of buses, mini buses, trams and taxis is available. Regular ferry routes connect Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the outer islands in addition to Macau and mainland China.
- Air: Hong Kong International Airport, located on Lantau Island, is accessible by train, bus and taxi service. It is serviced by most major airlines. The MTR’s high-speed Airport Express is the fastest way to travel to and from the airport.
- Octopus Card: Widely used in Hong Kong, the Octopus Card is a stored-value electronic card accepted for public transportation services and purchases in convenience stores, fast food shops and supermarkets. The Octopus Card is the primary means of payment for travel on the MTR, buses, trams and ferries. To make a purchase, simply place the Octopus Card over a reader and the amount of the purchase is deducted from the stored value.
