Student Residence Halls

The Undergraduate Halls

Residential education forms an integral part of the University's holistic approach to higher education. The University aims at cultivating a "living-learning" environment in the Halls where residents will enjoy a "home away from home" environment and benefit from the many learning opportunities for acquiring life skills, facilitating intellectual achievement, experiencing multi-cultural exchanges, and getting involved in the many-faceted campus life programs.

Commissioned in March 2002, the Undergraduate Halls provide a total of 1,770 residences for full-time students of the University at this point. The facility is under the care and management by the Office of Student Affairs.

The Hall Administration led by the Student Housing Manager intends to provide a well-maintained, secure, clean and comfortable physical environment in the Halls, which is conducive to the learning and whole-person development of students. It is also responsible for the preparation of annual budgets; general financial management; provision of secretarial support to various committees; property and facility repairs, maintenance and management; ongoing improvement of the amenities; administration of hall applications and attritions; collection of hall fees and various charges; as well as the provision of general administrative support to the operation.
