Kang Yung Study Hall in Sheung Wo Hang Village of Sha Tau Kok was built by the Li clan in the early years of the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1911) and was originally established as a private school, catering for students in the area. It was later converted into a primary school which was closed when the last group of students departed in the summer of 1986.

The architecture of the Study Hall is simple but functional. This 2-hall building has a rectangular layout with cocklofts, providing both classrooms and quarters. The external walls are made of grey bricks and the internal partitions are made of unfired mud-bricks and rammed earth.

Kang Yung Study Hall was declared a monument in 1991. A full restoration was completed in 1993.
