Hall life in HKU is highly valued, and forms part of the tradition of the University. The University has 13 halls of residence, with a total of 3,992 residential places, primarily for undergraduates. Students who are not living in a residential hall can still obtain many of the benefits of hall life as an affiliated member by joining a residential hall or one of the three non-residential halls. Non-hall student housing is also available. For more details, please visit the Centre of Development and Resources for Students (CEDARS) website.
