The International House is to enlist Male and Female volunteers from University staff and postgraduate students to serve as Resident Tutors for the 2022-23 academic year.

All full-time degree-holding staff and full-time postgraduate students are welcome to apply. Applicants should be mature, responsible, and possess good interpersonal skills. Fluency in English is a must, while knowledge of Putonghua and Cantonese will be an advantage. You would be in a good position if you have a track record in organizing extra-curricular activities, equip with artistic or cultural talents, with past experiences as a resident tutor, and having completed Mental Health First Aid training. The appointment period is from 1 August 2022 to 31 July 2023, while early check-in might be required.


The Resident Tutor will be reporting to the Wardens. Duties include:

  1. Attend shifts as tutor-on-duty according to a roster that includes weekdays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays;
  2. Plan and organize resident activities; and support the activities hosted by the residents;
  3. Provide guidance to the Residents’ Association;

  5. Provide support, advice, and care to residents, and handle emergency cases;
  6. Assist in the check-in and check-out exercises;
  7. Perform other duties assigned by the Wardens and I-House management office


Successful applicants will be nominated as voluntary Resident Tutors. This is not concurrent full-time or part-time employment with the University. A single room will be offered, but the room’s location is subject to the management’s decision. There will not be any allowance/remuneration or any other employee benefits for the provision of this volunteer service.
