Regulations Governing Summer Hall Residence

Regulations Governing Hall Residence” should generally apply to summer residence unless otherwise specified below.

1) Eligibility and Priority

All current full-time students, including final year students, are eligible to apply for Summer Residence, except inbound exchange students whose student visa will expire in semester 2 of the academic year.

2) Allocation Principles

In case of overwhelming demand, priority will be offered to Hall Associations members and current hall residents. For applicants who are not currently living in the Student Halls, priority will be given to students of UGC-funded degree programs. Local applicants of equal priority will be further prioritized by their living locations and home environment as quantified in the part A and B of the Point Scoring Mechanism (PSM).

3) Payment Terms

a) New residents are required to pay Hall Caution Money of $500 (refundable subject to no claim on room inventories upon check-out) while current residents will have their Hall Caution Money for the current year carried forward, provided there is no outstanding claim.

b) For withdrawal from Summer Residence, an administration charge of $500 will be levied before refund arrangement.

4) Deferred payment of Hall Fee

Application of deferred payment of Hall Fee for summer term will not be considered.

5) Late Applications

All applications submitted after the application deadline will not be eligible to pair-up room-mates and Hall Administration reserves the right to reject their applications in any circumstances.

6) Hall and Room Allocation

In general, successful applicants of current residents will be allocated to the same hall building and individual hall where they are living. However, in order to best utilize resources, they may be required to move to another hall or room within the same hall building right after the mass check-out if necessary. Students should follow the hall and room allocation result. Subsequent request for hall/room transfer will not be entertained. If students plan to leave Hong Kong during the room change period, they should authorize a friend for room change matters.

7) Pair-up of Room-mates

a) Applicants can indicate their room-mates via an on-line facility with mutual agreement.

b) Applicants who have not indicated their room-mates will be assigned one by the Hall Administration.

c) The Hall Administration reserves the right to make a final decision on room allocation in any case of dispute.

8) Room Change (for current residents)

If current residents are required to move to another room, they will be notified with the room change arrangements by email. If students cannot complete the room transfer within the period specified, they should understand and agree that the Halls will move their personal belongings to their new assigned room without their presence. They will also be subject to administration charges including a) a penalty fine of $44 per day for holding 2 beds, b) a fine of $100 per day and other charges as deemed necessary. The University disclaims any liability for the loss and damage to the personal belongings of the residents concerned.

9) Summer Extension (the period between Summer Residence and next Residential Year)

Students who have a hall offer of next residential year, and members of Hall Associations who need to organize orientation programmes, can  apply  for residence in Summer Extension Period. Applications must reach the Hall Administration and the lodging fee associated must be  settled before  the deadline. Failure to do either one will invalidate the applicants' entitlement to residence during the Summer Extenstion  Period.
