Eligibility for Application

In view of the current shortage of hostel places, no on-campus accommodation can be provided for students taking Self-financed Taught programmes or Part-time programmes.

Please note that continuing students (extending beyond the normative period of study) are no longer eligible to apply for the postgraduate halls, and are recommended to visit the webpage of Learning and Cultural Enhancement Section, Office of Student Affairs or send email to or call the staff there at 39437945 for information regarding off-campus accommodation.

Applicants, who are on the waiting list posted on 27 May 2020, can check the RESULT here. Applicants will not receive individual notification of the results.

All successful applicants have to commit to hostel accommodation by academic terms with an allowance to pay the hostel fee by monthly instalments. A resident has to pay the hostel fee until the end of the term even though he/she leaves the hostel in the middle of the term.

Once the application has been confirmed to be successful by the Selection Board, the HK$2,000 application fee will ONLY be used to settle part of the first two months' hostel fee and is NON-REFUNDABLE in any circumstances. Once registered and / or obtained the hostel keys, the resident will be billed for the whole month's rent, HK$3,500 and HK$20 Residents' Association fee.

Applications on the Waiting List

Due to insufficient hostel places, some on-time applicants who were not successful in lot drawing, have been put on the waiting list. Whenever there is a withdrawal, we shall draw lots from the on-time applicants on the waiting list as the first priority. The applications submitted after the deadline will be processed according to the time of application received. Should there be vacancies for the students on the waiting list, the PGH General Office will contact them individually through email. They should take their responsibilities to check their emails (all email boxes) and update their email addresses to the PGH Office if there are any changes. When the cheques expired without any replacement, the application will be invalid. The applicants should check the expiry dates of their cheques themselves. The list is on numerical order of the student identity number, not on the basis of priority.

Application for Residence at the Postgraduate Halls 2020/21

Eligible postgraduate students can still tender their Online Applications after the first round deadline on 23 April 2020 as application is accepted throughout the year. All applications submitted after the deadline of 23 April 2020 will be defined as "Late Applicants". Late applications will be processed after the on-time applications.

Measures in Hostels under COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 situation which is unlikely to disappear shortly, preventive measures, including social distancing, minimizing of group activities and other infection control measures, are required in the Postgraduate Halls in order to combat the spread of COVID-19 until further notice. For more details, please refer to the notices posted at the bottom of the page. Besides, certain floors in JCPGH 1 will be reserved as backup room for emergency use.

On the other hand, according to the university, people with medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, immunosuppressive drug therapy, heart disease, HIV and other clinical conditions are considered as high risk subjects if contracted COVID-19. Since it is a grouped living condition in the Postgraduate Halls where inevitably many facilities are being shared, students should acknowledge the risk of infection if they wish to live in hostels.
