Designated accommodation packages of NTTIH are offered according to respective students. Students could opt for one-semester residence or monthly accommodation package due to exchange programme. Students who accept the offer of student residence shall commit to staying at the designated bed space during the whole committed accommodation period.

According to the University's Admission Criteria, UGC-funded full-time non-local Research Postgraduate Students and Exchange Postgraduate Students have higher priorities in allocating on-campus accommodation at Dr. Ng Tor Tai International House ("NTTIH") in the first year of study or exchange period. There is no guarantee that University accommodation will be provided starting from the second year of their studies.

Second priority will be given to full-time non-local Undergraduate Students who will be in second year of their studies. Eligible full-time non-local Undergraduate Students who want to apply for NTTIH are required to put forth their applications via online application system on or before the specified deadline.

The remaining bed spaces will be allocated to full-time non-local Taught Postgraduate Students who will be allocated in NTTIH in the first year of study if needed. Yet, priorities will be given to those whose study programs are UGC-funded. All applications shall be processed on a first-come-first-served basis and governed by Housing Policy of the University.
