Q & A
Q: If I live in Hall 1 and apply for housing in Hall 2 next year, can my contributions to Hall 1 be transferred to my applcaiton for Hall 2?
A: Residents are required to apply for the same hall they are currently living in. Your performance is recoginised by your current hall tutors and masters, but may not be known to persons in other halls. Once you are selected as returning residents, you are required to make contrbutions to the hall as committed in the hall-specific form for the next year.
Q: If I plan to go exchange next semester, will the bedplace be reserved for me?
A: All residents must apply via AIMS and submit a hard copy of the hall-specific form before the application deadline. If you are going away for exchange study or are waiting for the results when submitting your hall applications, you still have to submit your hall applications. Release of hall application results is on 15 April. By that time, you will know for sure whether you are going for exchange or not. If you are successfully selected for both a year-long exchange and hall bedplaces, you need not confirm your hall offer by paying the confirmation fee. However, if you are going for exchange in Sem A only and need a hall place in Sem B, you need to confirm the hall offer and inform SRO during the confirmation period.
Q: If I can’t get a bedplace next semester, what should I do?
A: SRO has a well-established on-line system for students living off-campus. Survey results show that students living off-campus enjoy quality life and the expenses are also reasonable. More off-campus accommodation information can be found on the SRO website.

One final word to applicants: Late application will not be entertained. All information provided in hall applications must be true and accurate.
