UG Resident Handbook 2023-24

The Hall Management staff would like to extend our warmest welcome to you! Our mission is to provide quality management, facilities, and services to our residents. Working with DSTO (Dean of Students’ Office) and other academic departments, we strive to provide a vibrant and diverse living and learning platform for cultural, recreational, social and academic growth for our residents. 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, peers and hall 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 becoming an 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 activities organized by your Residence Master and hall staff. We are sure that it will be an unforgettable experience for you to be involved in the hall life at HKUST! Welcome Message 2 Welcome Message
