Hostel life is an essential part of Lingnan’s liberal arts education. In 2014, we became the only university in Hong Kong that provides 4-year full residency for undergraduates and we now have 10 hostel blocks with 2,600 hostel places. The diverse hostel activities and immense interaction with students of different disciplines and cultural background creates an environment that is conducive to transformation of students from protected teenagers into independent and caring young leaders of broad exposure and international perspectives.
