Welcome to Lui Che Woo College
In 2010, the 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.
LCWC is laid out in a S-shape design. At each corner, there is a stairwell and lift. The ground floor contains public areas, offices, dining hall, and different function rooms including study room, meeting room, TV room, music room, gym room, sports activity room, laundry, and vendor machine zone. Students live in floors 1 through 6. A room for student who are disable and/or required wheelchair is available on the first floor.
There are more than 270 shared twin rooms accessible with showers and toilets in the building. Bathrooms with toilet and tiled shower located between two rooms, shared by maximum 4 students with same gender. A dinning hall is located in ground floor and meals were provided for residents who stay in the college during term time.

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.
LCWC is effectively made up of six–story residential building, which is the most recognizable and distinctive college. All of these buildings are structurally connected, but they have separate entrances and spaces. To provide counseling and advice to the students who stay in the college, LCWC has an apartment for College Master, Associate Master, and Resident Fellows.
