The application of the Postgraduate House (PGH) accommodation for the 1st semester of Academic Year 2020/2021 is now opened for current postgraduate students*. Details of the PGH Student Accommodation Application for 1st semester of 2020/2021 are as follows:
PGH Residence Period: 01 Aug to 30 Dec 2020, move out by 31 Dec 2020 (14:00)

* No matter if you are currently staying in our Postgraduate House or not, if you would like to occupy a bed-space in the 1st semester of 2020/2021, you are required to submit this application. We strongly advise you to submit the application if you think even there is a slight need, you may cancel if you realize there is no such need later, otherwise no application will be accepted after the deadline.
A. Important Points for bed space allocation:
I. Late applications will NOT be accepted. Even if students are willing to accept the penalties, SRS will not entertain.. Any decision made by SRS shall be final.
II. Due to the limited number of bed spaces in PGH, the University ensures bed spaces for the new non-local students in their first year of study in postgraduate programmes. The PGH applications of the other grades of postgraduate students may not be approved, particularly for those whose programmes of study are beyond the normal study period.
III. If demand for bed-spaces is more than supply, the Student Resources Section (SRS) will allocate bed spaces according to the points as below:
a. According to Article 3 of the Postgraduate House Rules, local postgraduate students have the lowest priority to be allocated for bed spaces.
b. In accordance with the PGH move-in declaration endorsed by students when making PGH application, postgraduate students who are beyond their study period also have a lower priority to be allocated for bed spaces.
c. According to Postgraduate House Point System, in case the number of applicants exceeds the number of available bed spaces of the semester, the PGH point will be considered as a reference standard. Students who with a negative points also have a lower priority to be allocated for bed spaces.
IV. For current PGH students who are staying in the single room and suite they have to move-out by 31st May 2020 (Actual date might be adjusted according to the arrangements for class resumption / 2020 Summer Stay). They have to apply for single room and suite again if they would like to stay in the same room type but subject to the availability. Lucky draw will be applied and PGH points will be added to the winners. Single room/suite applicants with highest PGH Points will be allocated single rooms/suites and the cut-off date of PGH points will be 17 April 2020 (23:59).
Besides, all PGH points in this Academic Year will be reverted to zero on 17 April 2020 (24:00). (Except students whose final total is under zero).
V. For current PGH students who are staying in the shared rooms, they can find a room mate and submit the application together. They can be arranged together to stay in the shared room for the summer stay and for 1st semester of academic year 2020/2021, subject to the availability. However, both students are required to submit their own applications and be consistent with the room mate's information. In case any inconsistent information has been found, both students cannot stay together and will be allocated randomly by SRS.
VI. For current PGH students who are staying in the shared rooms, they cannot find a room mate to stay with during the summer stay and/or 1st semester of 2020/2021 academic year, as announced earlier, the Student Resources Section (SRS) will assign a room mate for them or relocate the applicants without roommates to another shared rooms.
VII. For current PGH students who have not applied bed-spaces for the 1st semester of academic year 2019/2020, the last move-out date for summer stay is 31 Jul 2020 before 14:00.
