At CUHK, housing is set up for you before you arrive as part of the application. Fall arrivals initially stay at one dorm during orientation then move to another dorm for the remainder of the term. Spring arrivals move directly into dorm housing for the term.


You will live in a dorm on campus with local and international students. The campus dorms, called hostels in Hong Kong, are among the most affordable housing options in Hong Kong. You can choose a double or triple room, and each floor has communal kitchens where you can prepare and share meals. Recent returnees have said that dorm life at CUHK is much like joining a fraternity or sorority at UC. Students relish their hall pride with camaraderie and group activities. An on-site resident provides support and upholds the rules.
