The list of successful applicants with Halls (PGH 1, PGH 2, PGH 3 or PGH 4-6) and room types (single rooms or shared rooms and room numbers) for registration dates on 31 July and 1 September 2015, as well as the applicants on the waiting list can be found in the links at the bottom of the home page as well as in the “Announcement” page.

Please download the corresponding registration documents and submit the completed registration documents to the corresponding office according to your time slots on 31 July 2015 if you are new residents.

Please note that no early check-in is allowed this year. If you want to defer your registration, please email PGH Office at before 31 July 2015. Otherwise you may be regarded as giving up your hostel space and it will be allotted to the students on the waiting list and the application fees will not be refunded. Please do not send your luggage to your room before you arrive in Hong Kong as no one will receive the luggage on behalf of you. Please take your temperature on the previous three days before arriving in Hong Kong and complete the Health Record Form.

For those who should check in on 1 September 2015, you can check in throughout the day. But if you want to defer your registration, please inform PGH Office before 1 September 2015.

For current residents who will continue to stay in PGH in the coming year, please submit the registration forms between 27 June and 10 July 2015. If you chose to change your room, please move to the room immediately when you are informed by the PGH Office that the room is available. If you will not be in Hong Kong during the moving period, please clear your room and return the keys to the PGH Office before your departure and the new room keys will be given to you when you come back. As any delay of moving rooms will affect the whole process of allotment, PGH reserves the right of moving rooms for the residents who fail to change rooms as told and contact their departments for help.

Late Applications

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 2015 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.

Applicants should fill in the form “Application for Residence at the Postgraduate Halls 2015/16” (can be downloaded from below) and submit the completed form with a cheque/bankdraft of HK$2,000 payable to “The Chinese University of Hong Kong” and the photocopy of the “Admission Notification” or student identity card. Applications without sufficient materials will not be proceeded.

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.
