  1. Non-local undergraduate students admitted from 2023/24 onwards will, subject to the availability of residential places, normally be given an opportunity to stay in University-managed Accommodation (UMA - including the Student Halls and off-campus housing), for their first year of study (including the period of joining work-integrated-education/internship and/or outbound exchange programme, if any). Non-local undergraduate students are reminded to arrange their own accommodation outside the Student Halls from their second year of study onwards.
  2. To address the imbalance between male and female hall places, a cluster of 8 rooms on every female floors of co-ed UG halls in Hung Hom Halls is set aside for male students. A typical floor plan shows the change here.
  3. The University reserves all rights on room arrangement. Students should understand that their preferences for hall, room type and roommate indicated in the application are not guaranteed.
