Application approval of student residence is subject to the University’s Admission Criteria governing application for student residence and bed space availability. Submission of application form does not guarantee that offer of bed space can be granted.



Full-time Non-local Research Postgraduate Students

According to the Housing Policy, UGC-funded full-time non-local research students will be accommodated in the University accommodation in their first year of studies if needed. Priorities will be given to those who are awardees of the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme.

  1. Although research postgraduate students have higher priority to others in applying for on-campus student residence, they should forward applications as soon as possible. 
  2. If a current research postgraduate student is going to continue his / her study in the coming academic year and would like to apply for the student residence, no matter he / she is currently residing at any residence of the University, he / she is still required to submit an application by specified deadline.   
  3. A successful applicant will receive an email notification. He / She should follow the instruction and indicate his / her acceptance of the bed space. If he / she fails to respond before the specified deadline by settling the accommodation fee and associated fees (i.e. caution money and student activity annual fee), the bed space offer will automatically be forfeited.
