Hong Kong is a safe city comparatively. However, it is always in your best interests to remain vigilant about your personal safety.

Student safety is our priority. The Global Engagement Office (GEO) constantly monitors world and region-specific events via news updates from foreign consular offices, official education agencies, immigration authorities, partner institutions, media outlets and other sources. Health and safety alerts and travel warnings are issued to students when necessary.

To enhance safety awareness among students, GEO also organises briefings by the police and other professional bodies during Orientation Week to inform new arrivals of the ‘Dos and Don’ts’ for ensuring a safe and pleasant stay in Hong Kong.
