Do I need to apply for the on-campus accommodation? If yes, when?

Yes. The Global Affairs Office will inform successful applicants about on-campus accommodation application procedures.

When can I check in to my EdUHK student hostel?

You can check in prior to the start of the semester. The exact dates will be given to students in due course.

Can I check in to my hostel earlier than the early check-in period?

Check-in prior to the designated period is not allowed so students need to arrange own accommodation if they come earlier.

How much is the hostel fee and when do need to pay?

As of 2019/20, the hostel fee is approximately HK$5,530 - 7,380 (US$708-946)/ semester plus a Hall Life Education fee of approximately HK$220 (US$28)/one-off payment. The payment instructions will be sent to you before you check in.

Do I need to bring my own bedding?

Yes. Bed sheets, blankets and pillows are not provided by EdUHK student hostels. Alternatively, you can purchase these items in Hong Kong after you arrive.

Are there any other fees that I need to pay, i.e. meal plan, utilities charges, etc?

Meal plans are not provided at EdUHK hostels, but there are catering outlets on campus. Air conditioning and utilities are charged by use and controlled through a smart card, which can be bought on campus. If you live in Northcote Hall, Grantham Hall or Robert Black Hall, you will need to pay for the air conditioning for your bedroom and laundry charges. Students staying in The Jockey Club Student Quarters share their flat’s utility charges.

Can I live off campus?

All exchange students are strongly advised to live on campus.
