Housing, Dining, and Transportation
Students live in one of the state-of-the-art residence halls on the University of Hong Kong’s campus. The rooms, typically doubles, are comfortably furnished, each with air conditioning, an internet connection, and shared bathroom facilities. The site director and resident advisers live with the students in the residence hall. The ratio of resident advisers to students is approximately 1 to 10. Behavioral standards, including a curfew (11:00 p.m. during the week and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays), are strictly enforced.
Access to the residence hall is controlled by the reception desk, which is staffed 24 hours a day. Gatherings in rooms are prohibited after 10:00 p.m. Visits with guests who are not in the Hong Kong program are restricted to the ground floor. Visitors must identify themselves at the reception desk as guests of a resident and must leave the residence hall by 11:00 p.m. Commuter students are not permitted to enter a residential student’s room at any time.
The MTR (Mass Transit Rail), Hong Kong’s extensive public transportation system, has a stop on campus allowing students to navigate the city safely. The University of Hong Kong’s campus also has a number of eateries available for students to utilize for meals.
Students are required to bring their own laptops. Internet connections are available in the residence hall and throughout campus.
To strike a balance between study and relaxation, optional in-town evening and weekend activities are offered, including supervised outings geared toward getting to know Hong Kong. Students are expected to cover the cost of optional activities.
Accommodation details are subject to change based upon residence hall availability.
