Are you a new international student at CityU looking for a place to stay? Or just a local student yearning for something refreshing and exciting in your life rather than living with your parents? The Student Residence provides to all these desires and more. Here’s a few reasons why you should consider the halls during your time at CityU:

  1. Experience Something New & Challenging: Living in the hall will give you a totally new and unforgettable experience. Yet, it is also challenging. Learning to adapt, work with others, and take responsibility are key to having a happy hall life.
  1. Make New Friends: In the halls there is a chance to meet people from all over the world. Make new friends, enjoy different food, or learn a new language together!
  1. Be Independent & Self-sufficient: This is your chance to be independent, make your own decisions, and live according to your (and the halls’) rules. No more parents to help you!
  1. Be Close To the Campus: The Student Residence at Cornwall Street is just about 10-15mins away from AC-1. No more waiting restlessly for the MTR or bus and wasting time and money on travel. Also, amenities like the library or gym are easily reachable.
  1. Join Hall Celebrations and Competitions: Halls also provide opportunities to hone your skills, and compete with other halls in competitions like athletic, aquatic, music, etc. Fight for your hall, enjoy the team spirit, celebrate global festivals, or just cheer for your team. Hall life is never dull. Enjoy the hall amenities and culture to the fullest while growing and learning endlessly!

  1. 新鮮、有挑戰性的經歷:住在學生宿舍不僅是全新且難忘的經歷,更是有挑戰性的。適應新環境,學會與人相處,培養責任感——這些都是愉快宿舍生活的關鍵。
  1. 認識新朋友:在舍堂中有來自世界各地的同學。和他們成為朋友,一起體驗美食,學習語言吧!
  1. 學會獨立自主:沒有了家長的幫助,住在舍堂正是你學會獨立並自己做主的好機會。不過要記得遵守舍堂的守則喔!
  1. 離校園更近:從位於歌和老街的學生宿舍步行到學術樓(一)只需十到十五分鐘。這意味著再不用花時間和錢在港鐵、巴士上。另外,圖書館和健身房都是咫尺之遙。
  1. 參加舍堂的慶祝活動和比賽:代表你的舍堂參加多種多樣的比賽;參與各地節日的慶祝活動;加入啦啦隊為你的舍堂助威——舍堂生活絕不無聊。讓我們一起享受舍堂的設施和文化活動,在這裏盡情學習和成長吧!
