Our University Anthem

Released in 2023, the HKUST University Anthem was created through the concerted efforts of many talented individuals both within and outside of the University. Its melody and original lyrics in Putonghua were selected from a variety of submissions in response to a call for entries. The Cantonese and English versions were produced afterwards. The university anthem represents the shared identity and innovative spirit of HKUST and fosters a greater sense of belonging and pride among all University members.

Red bird standing guard beneath the rising sun
That watches o’er the citadels 
of learning all as one


Leaping forward till each marathon is run
We're striving for a legacy like none 
we’re children of the sun


Fountain of knowledge lifts our flight 
Science and Arts scaling new heights
Engineering Business leading lights


Scholars and dreamers heed the call
reaching our goals and standing tall
bringing pride and honour to us all


Love for this land our heart imparts 
Spurring us to a brave new start
HKUST the beacon of our heart
