Successful TSFS or FASP applicants who will participate in placement / internship / field trip / exchange programme with pay/subsidy or overseas, or reside in our hall of residence during term time* are NOT eligible for Student Travel Subsidy during the period.
* Term time is the days during semesters when students have to attend classes and exams.
Hostel subsidy for needy undergraduate students (院校宿舍津貼)
Successful TSFS and FASP applicants who reside in HKBU accommodation and meet the criteria set will be eligible for the hostel subsidy.

Students do NOT have to make any separate application for the hostel subsidy and students have to settle the full hall fee first if you decide to reside in our hall of residence.
