Welcome to Lui Che Woo College

In 2010 University of Macau became the first public university in Macau to implement a residential college system based upon the historic traditions of residential colleges at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, and Yale University. Lui Che Woo College (LCWC) is one of eight residential colleges on the campus of University of Macau. As part of the residential college system, LCWC is more than just a place to live. It is a cohesive and energetic residential community that seeks to broaden the learning experience beyond the traditional classroom settings.

Lui Che Woo College (LCWC) is a new residential college of University of Macau (UM) built up in 2014 located at the Hengqin campus. It was started with a MOP$30 million endowment to the University for the vision in the 21st century. The money was donated by the Lui Che Woo Foundation Limited, which included establishing a new residential college to accommodate the need of the expansion of UM while keeping the characteristics that makes UM distinctive.

College Identity

LCWC Logo-retina
盾徽象征著莊重、榮耀、高貴與典雅等多重寓意,設計結合本學院三點重要宗旨,來體現本學院理念。將盾徽一分為三突出本學院三點宗旨,而三個塊面內正式三點宗旨的寓意。
左上角“叢林之王”獅子喻意領導者
右上角兩個相握手心型圖案寓意無私奉獻,關心,幫助。由左至右當成為一位領導者或有能力的人應該做一個為社會服務,負責任的公民,這正是本學院精神。
下方圖案為忍冬,凌冬不雕,輪迴永生。作為卷草紋的原型,其影響深遠,但並不被人熟知,這正好與持久平靜-平常的生活哲學相契合。 盾徽兩邊桂枝,古代授予接觸的詩人或競技的優勝者。後來歐洲習俗以桂冠為光榮稱號。茂盛的桂葉喻意向上健康生命力,果實則喻意學院會讓不同學子成為傑出優秀的人。

Representing dignity and honor, nobility and grace, these college arms signify the three ideals of our college as shown by the triadic images. To begin with, the lion king represents leadership while hand shaking in the shape of a heart symbolizes selfless devotion and love. Read in association with each other, it means we should nurture ourselves into civic-minded citizens and serve the community with a flair of leadership. The arms are completed by the presence of honeysuckle. Sprouting every year, the hardy vine is animated with a protean force of life. Yes, it may be obscure but it certainly leaves its presence felt by propagating far and wide. As such it insinuates into us the philosophy that you don’t have to look beyond the simplicity of life to find inner peace: It’s right in there.


Facilities

All of these buildings are structurally connected, but they have separate entrances and spaces.

The study room is LCWC’s public study space. There are tables and chairs for group study, a couch for napping or reading, and a whiteboard for your educational (or recreational) sketches.
