According to the present University Housing Policy, Full-time exchange undergraduate students will be accommodated in on-campus accommodation during their exchange studies.
Students must possess a student status of “Normal Study” as defined by the Academic Registry during the stay in the Student Halls. You may check your student status in BUniPort > Profile > Personal Particulars & Study Record. Students who cease to be classified as “Normal Study” (e.g. taking an internship) will no longer be eligible for student accommodation and will be required to check out of the hall.
Successful hall applicants are to be offered hall places according to their exchange period.
