Hong Kong – PolyU is scheduled to start the second semester on January 13 and some areas have been recently reopened. Newly added features include 9 entry gates at the entrance near Block A. Students and teaching staff will be required to swipe their university ID cards for entry.
Student representative of the School Council, Owan Li expressed his dissatisfaction, criticizing these new gates as monitoring tools and for restricting access.
A fierce police-civilian conflict took place last November at Polytechnic University. During the incident, many areas on campus were damaged and restoration took quite some time.
