Hostel Life Programs

Student Accommodation Section strives in accordance with the University’s mission to develop students as a whole person and to nourish their Graduate Attributes.  Through actively participating in the hostel life and joint-hostel activities, our student residents can develop all aspects of the whole person that every HKBU graduate should possess:


To end this, Dr. Ng Tor Tai International House and Off-campus Housing Team co-organised a wide range of hostel programs and activities in the hope of nurturing wholesome, responsible and open-minded young people.
