1.4 It is the responsibility of residents to advise their visitors that they MUST register and check in at the security kiosk when they enter and leave the Hall before 12:00 mid-night.

Disciplinary action will include warning (verbal and/or written which will be forwarded to concerned offices and academic Department), community services to Hall, termination of housing contract, etc.

We shall update and/or amend the rules from time to time to maintain our Hall as a good place for study and living. Please contact your residence tutors and/or floor representative if you have any feedback on these rules. You can also forward your comment to the relevant forums.
