On-campus Accommodation

Undergraduate Students
The University provides term time on-campus accommodation to eligible undergraduate students. Students are allocated to a hostel place in their affiliated college or in the International House (I-House) managed by the Office of Student Affairs. If necessary, students can apply for summer accommodation to their respective college/ hostel as instructed.

Important Note:
Non-local students are given the option to live on or off campus. They will be guaranteed three years of hostel place during their undergraduate studies at CUHK if they wish to stay on campus. However, non-local students are encouraged to take up off-campus accommodation for one academic year during their studies to enrich their exposures and broaden their perspectives.

Morningside College, S.H. Ho College and CW Chu College adopt a fully residential and communal dining system. Students admitted to one of these three colleges are required to live in the hostel during their undergraduate studies. The other six colleges – Chung Chi College, New Asia College, United College, Shaw College, Wu Yee Sun College and Lee Woo Sing College – guarantee three years of hostel place. For the non-guaranteed period, non-local students have to submit hostel applications to their respective colleges, and their applications would be reviewed according to the individual hostel selection criteria. For details of the hostel selection criteria, please refer to the latest announcement of your respective college.

Postgraduate Students
The Postgraduate Halls (PGH) offer more than 1,000 hostel places to postgraduate students. Due to limited hostel places, no on-campus accommodation is provided for students taking self-financed taught programmes or part-time programmes.  For details, please visit the Postgraduate Halls Management Office Homepage at www.pgh.cuhk.edu.hk or email to enquiry@pgh.cuhk.edu.hk.
