                                          Head of Student Housing and Residential Life

                                          As  the  Head  of  Student  Housing  and  Residential  Life,  I
                                          would like to extend my warm welcome to you. However,
                                          before you join the residence  hall community  at HKUST,
                                          do you have any expectations? The mission of our office is
                                          to provide  quality  management, facilities, personnel,
                                          services and learning programs to our residents. Working in
                                          concert with DSTO (Office of the Dean of Students), SAO
                                          (Student Affairs  Office)  and other  academic  departments,
                                          we strive  to  provide  a vibrant  and  diverse  living  and
                                          learning  platform  for  cultural,  recreational,  social and
                                          academic growth.
                   Not sure whether our office mission fits your own expectations. Living in the hall community at
                   HKUST will certainly be an amazing experience where you can meet lots of new friends, learn
                   how to live with your roommates, expose to idea that you have never encountered. You may
                   even face obstacles and problems that are difficult to solve. Do not feel desperate, as you are not
                   alone in facing these challenges. Many people within our hall community, including your
                   Residence Masters, Tutors, peers and our SHRL staff, can offer help and support. You are
                   welcome to speak out and discuss with us in order to find ways to cope with difficulties. This is
                   also a transition of being independent and responsible individual.

                   The student halls are close to lecture theatres and classrooms, and you can easily access
                   various campus resources. Our office offers a variety of programs that stimulates  both
                   educational  and social development.  You are  also encouraged  to join various  activities
                   organized by Residence Masters, Tutors and student groups.

                   I am sure that it will be an unforgettable experience for you to be involved in the hall life at
