The University has its origin in three colleges: New Asia College (founded in 1949), Chung Chi College (founded in 1951), and United College (founded in 1956). In 1963, the three colleges were amalgamated to form The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a fourth College, Shaw College, was established in 1986. Recently, five new colleges: Morningside College, S.H. Ho College, C.W. Chu College, Wu Yee Sun College, and Lee Woo Sing College have joined the CUHK family. CUHK has over 60 academic departments under eight faculties: Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Science, and Social Science.
