Completion date from Jerome Mellor's The University of Hong Kong: An Informal History:

The residential Robert Black College, where scholars visiting from overseas might live with selected postgraduate students, was opened by the Vice-Chancellor in January 1967, a mandate left to his successors by Lindsay Ride, tangible evidence not only of his personal friendship with its major donors led by Sir Shiu-kin Tang, but also of his dread of the effect upon the temper of the University, of inbreeding brought by the diminishing number of oversea students accompanied with a growth so rapid that its sights were already set on a population of 8,000 to 10,000 students. 


The first phase was in operation by the end of 1965.
