The room rates for re-admitted research students will be higher. The remaining normal study period of successful applicants should be more than 6 months at the time of check-in. The length of residence, if successfully admitted, will be about 1 year (from the check-in date to the month end of the 12th month), or up to the end of normal study period, whichever is the earlier. The application for re-admission will be processed according to the Allocation Principles stated, subject to availability of hall places.
