$20/night for each freshmen participant enrolled in UGC-funded programmes.

An additional 30% of subsidies may be granted if the orientation activities are organized by student organizations which have fulfilled the requirements of CODE 2019.Each eligible student organization could ONLY make one application.

Application Procedures

  • The completed application form shall be submitted in person to the Office of Student Affairs 6 weeks prior to the start of the camp or earlier, with the proposal and financial budget of the orientation camp.
