The accommodation period generally runs from September 1st to June 30th of the following year (a total of 10 months).
*The accommodation period and fees for students studying at SHAPE or WMG may be adjusted according to their study periods.
Arrangement for Accommodation Fees
The annual accommodation is divided into two periods:
1st period: from 1 September 2024 to 31 March 2025 (7-month)
2nd period: from 1 April 2025 to 30 June 2025 (3-month)
If a resident checks in after September 2024, the accommodation fees will be calculated proportionally based on the check-in date.
A refundable deposit of HK$1,000 will be charged in addition to the accommodation fee. The deposit will be refunded after completion of the committed residence period, less any restitution charges for any damage or loss of hall property caused by the resident.
The accommodation fee must be paid in full by the stated payment schedule and is non-refundable. No refund of accommodation fee will arise from late check-in or early withdrawal. Once check-in procedure is completed, despite early withdrawal, students are considered taken whole period of hall residence.
Refund of deposit
After the resident has completed the check-out procedure and settled all outstanding fees, the accommodation deposit will be refunded. If the resident fails to settle any outstanding fees on the day of check-out, the unpaid amount will be deducted from the deposit, and the resident will only receive the remaining balance of the deposit (if applicable). The resident needs to fill out an online check-out form before leaving to arrange for the refund of the deposit.
Non-local residents can apply for a refund via telegraphic transfer (applicable to non-local residents only):
The residence hall can arrange for a direct telegraphic transfer to the resident's overseas bank account. However, all bank charges and fees associated with the telegraphic transfer will be borne by the resident and will be deducted directly from the refund. In addition, the exchange rate used by the bank to convert Hong Kong dollars to the resident's local currency may also affect the final amount of the transfer. The Halls will not be responsible for any bank charges or currency conversion losses incurred through telegraphic transfers. If the resident chooses to receive the refund via telegraphic transfer, it is important to provide the residence hall office with the bank account information capable of receiving telegraphic transfers. Telegraphic transfer refunds may take more than six weeks and may vary depending on the country and currency involved.
