ChatGPT via Azure OpenAI Services – Message from VP(T&L)

Message from Professor Ian Holliday, Vice-President & Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching & Learning)

Dear colleagues

We are all aware of the significance of ChatGPT and keen to engage and experiment with it. From April 17 to June 30, 2023, the University will enable HKU staff to access ChatGPT via Azure OpenAI Services on a trial basis. Azure OpenAI Services offers a series of large language models, including GPT-35, Codex, and Embedding. It opens up new opportunities for integration with natural language processing, computer vision, and speech recognition in Azure Cognitive Services.

During the trial period, usage for HKU staff will be free of charge, though daily limits will apply. Based on the usage pattern in this period, a charging system will be developed for full rollout in the future. Once HKU’s Generative AI Task Force has established a policy and guidelines for student usage, we will also make the platform available to students.

To start using Azure OpenAI Services, please log in at We look forward to receiving your feedback, which can be sent to

Best wishes, Ian
