With the completion of two hostel blocks in 2014, Lingnan University became the only university in Hong Kong to offer on-campus accommodation to all undergraduate students for their whole study period. Moreover, a number of hostel places might be available for MIBF students too.
The hostel fee is determined by the Finance Committee, which acts on the advice of the Student Hostel Management Committee. The estimated hostel fee, within a range of possible variations, are made known to intending applicants when they apply for hostel places in April, but the final hostel fee will be determined and announced in June. The hostel fee for each resident covers one residential year. A deposit of $500 is required to be paid when a student settles the hostel fee. The deposit paid will be refunded at the end of the residential year after the deduction of the air-conditioning charges and any fees to cover damage of furniture/ facilities.
