Update on Hostel Restrictions Upon Return to Normalcy (3 March 2023)

All the pandemic restrictions will be uplifted in the student hostels. Residents and visitors will no longer be required to show the vaccine pass nor to wear masks in student hostels. The University will remain cautious against the pandemic so that the designated potential isolation floors are still ready for operation in case of contingencies.

Wardens of the student hostels have the discretion to retain or exert certain pandemic restrictions in the student hostels. Please stay tuned for the announcement from your Warden Office concerning such arrangements, if any.

Afterall, residents are advised to maintain personal and environmental hygiene for protection against infection. Should you feel sick or stay in high-risk areas, please wear mask to reduce the chance of spreading or catching a respiratory virus. Wish you good health and a fruitful semester.
