CUHK, which continues to be the only collegiate university in the territory, is structured into nine component colleges and eight academic faculties. Although most schools only offer English-language courses, the university conducts business in both English and Chinese. Academics there frequently lived in exile from the mainland due to financial hardships; as a result, students and lecturers occasionally slept on rooftops to support the college. In 1956, the school relocated to a new site in Kau Pui Lung that had been constructed with assistance from the Ford Foundation as money was eventually raised.

Various university rankings have routinely placed CUHK among the top three academic institutions in the region. In the ARWU, which is based on accolades and research production, it has consistently been the best Hong Kong university, topping league tables in 2006, 2010, 2011, and 2013. It placed second in the HKU Public Opinion Programme survey from 2012 results. Along with overall rankings, a list of subject rankings for Hong Kong’s tertiary institutions is accessible to demonstrate the strength of each institution’s ranked subjects.

According to US News & Report, the university placed 95th in the world. It was included among the “6-Star Greater China’s Universities” (the highest level) by the China Alumni Association, and it came in fourth position in the Association’s 2014 Ranking of Institutions with the Best Disciplines in HK, Macau, and Taiwan. With two first-class awards and five second-class awards in Natural Sciences, CUHK received eight Higher Education Outstanding Scientific Research Output Awards (Science and Technology) from the Ministry of Education (MoE) in 2014, making it the organization that received the most awards in the local tertiary sector. According to the QS rating for 2019, CUHK was rated 49th in the world.
