Joint-Hall O'Night

According to the present University Housing Policy, UGC-funded full-time non-local undergraduate students will be provided with on-campus hostel places in Year 1 of their studies. In Year 2, students can apply for on-campus or off-campus accommodation, subject to availability. No University accommodation (on-campus or off-campus) will be provided starting from Year 3 of their studies.
Remarks: The estimated rental charge of off-campus accommodation would be around HK$4,000 to $5,000 per month and the University would not provide any financial subsidy towards the rental charges
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 for 2018/19 are to be offered hall places for full Residential Year from 14 August 2018 to 19 May 2019, both nights inclusive. For some students who are not able to arrive to Hong Kong on 14 August due to issues relating to their entry permit/visa to Hong Kong, they should check in on 21 Aug 2018 onwards.
Starting from 2018/19, self-paid air conditioning in rooms and laundry machines in 1/F are to be charged up by Octopus Card. Non-local freshmen are strongly recommended to obtain an Octopus Card upon arrival on Hong Kong. Details of Octopus Card could be found HERE
Residents who do not pay the Hall Fees for the Second Semester will be adjusted their residential period to First Semester only and are required to check out by 12 noon on 27 Dec 2018.
Requests for early check-in or late check-out will NOT be considered.
Hall Offer will be recovered for students who fail to pay the Hall Fees on time or check in within 7 days from the first day of the hall offer period, and they will be deemed to have already stayed in the Halls during the hall offer period in their future hall applications.
Application Period : 10 – 20 Jul 2018 (HK Time)

Eligible students should submit hall applications HERE. Change of hall application information is allowed before the application deadline.
