CityU Information Day was held last Saturday on October 14th. The Student Residence Office has organized hall tours introducing the Student Residence from 10 AM to 5:00 PM. Free shuttle bus service was provided to allow visitors travelling between the CityU main campus, the Run Run Shaw Creative Meida Centre and the Student Residence.
Over 1,000 visitors, including secondary school students, parents and teachers, received a full load of information about the Student Residence’s facilities and the dynamic hall life through attending hall tours, hence satisfying their concerns and curiosity.
Below are some sharing by student helpers and visitors:
“The hall area was quite boisterous today. Many students (mainly form 5 and 6 students) came with their friends or parents. I was responsible for crowd control by gathering groups of visitors at the Moon Chun Multi-function Hall (Mul A) and giving them basic information about the Student Residence through a talk before they go on to a hall tour. The talk introduced the Student Residence with a video clip, which briefly talked about our vibrant hall life, facilities and environments in the hall area, in hopes of increasing visitors’ interest in our residence.”

“I was responsible for guiding visitors in hall tours. Each hall tour lasted for approximately half an hour. I introduced hall facilities including the common room, laundry room, gym room and library. Many visitors were amazed by how well-equipped our halls were. I also discovered an interesting phenomenon—most of our student visitors were obsessed with how residents designed their rooms! When I told them some residents decorated their rooms according to their own tastes and preferences, they seemed to be really captivated by this idea. Overall speaking, I think the hall tours had deepened their understanding of the Student Residence.”
- NG Tzs Ho, Student Helper from Lee Shau Kee Hall, Year 1, Electronic Engineering (Hong Kong)
“This Information Day–especially the hall tour–has definitely motivated me to study well in order to get into university! I was moved by the fruitful life of living in the hall as introduced by the student helpers. All the activities including the autumn trips, poon choi banquets and high table dinners attracted me a lot. As a secondary school student, I have been longing for a hall life and spending my youth with friends everyday. I think CityU’s hall life seems to be quite suitable for me!”
