Students are strongly encouraged to reside on campus so that they can live and interact more with students from different cultural backgrounds. Those residing on campus will be housed in a student dormitory in double- or triple-occupancy rooms with shared bathroom facilities. Basic cooking facilities and communal facilities, such as laundry, study room, music room, computer room, and multi-purpose room are also available. The hostel fee for the period from 29 June to 7 August 2013 is HK$3,900 (US$500) (including air-conditioning and simple bedding).
Students may request a longer residential period or special room arrangements through the Office of Academic Links. An application form is downloadable from here.
For regular meals, students can choose to dine at one of the many student canteens located throughout the campus. Meals cost around HK$25 to HK$50 per meal.
Note: CUHK students who wish to reside on campus during the summer may apply for summer residence through their colleges.
