Lingnan Host Family Scheme

Lingnan Host Family Scheme (LHFS) is a programme specially designed for new non-local undergraduate students. The aims of the scheme are to render care and support for the new non-local undergraduate students and facilitate their adaptation to life in Lingnan as well as Hong Kong. By joining this scheme, students can get advice and support when facing challenges, build a stronger sense of belonging and have a deeper understanding of Hong Kong society.

Students who joined the scheme will be taken care by a host family who is a staff member of Lingnan. The scheme is a non-residential programme. Students will not live with their host families. The host families will organise regular meetings and activities for their students and invite their students to join their family gatherings as well. 

For details and registration of the scheme, please refer to the email to be sent to you in late July.
