The Postgraduate Halls (PGH) consist of six buildings, Jockey Club Postgraduate Hall (PGH 1), Chiang's Building (PGH 2), Inter-University Hall (IUH) - PGH 3 and PGH 4 to 6, offering about 1,100 hostel spaces. Postgraduate students taking full-time Research programmes or full-time UGC-funded Taught programmes are eligible to apply for residence at the Postgraduate Halls.

Application for Residence at the Postgraduate Halls 2014/15

In view of the current shortage in 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 postgraduate hostels. They are recommended to contact the Incoming Students Section, Office of Student Affairs (e-mail: isso@cuhk.edu.hk, tel: 39437945, webpage: http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/osa/iss/aboutiss.html) for information regarding off-campus accommodation.

From 2010, all residents 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. The academic year is divided into three terms: 1 August to 23 December 2014, 1 January to 31 May 2015, and 1 June to 20 July 2015. Only residents with special reasons such as graduation, internship, exchange and medical condition can apply for exemption from paying for the whole term.

Please note that once the application has been confirmed to be successful, the $2,000 application fee will ONLY be used to settle part of the first two months' hostel fee and is NON-REFUNDABLE. Once registered and/or obtained the room key, the resident will be billed for the whole month's rent, $3,000 deposit and $20 Residents' Association fee. Residents have to commit to hostel accommodation by academic terms but with an allowance of paying the hostel fees by monthly instalments.

All residents should also note that NO print-out hostel fee debit notes will be generated to residents (including paying by PG Stipends or paying on their own). Residents can choose deduction of PGS Stipend in settling hostel fees.

Due to insufficient hostel spaces, some on time applications are not successful in lot drawing and put on the waiting list. All applications submitted after the deadline 30 April 2014 will be defined as “Late Applications” and put on the waiting list. Late applications will be processed later than the on-time applications. The waiting list is on numerical order of the student identity number and is not concerned with the priority.

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 and update their email address 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.
