Lingnan Host Family Scheme

Lingnan Host Family Scheme (LHFS) is a programme specially designed for non-local degree-seeking students to render a warm support to facilitate their adaptation to live in Lingnan as well as Hong Kong. By joining this scheme, non-local degree-seeking students can build a stronger sense of belonging, achieve a better adaptation to live in Lingnan, and get a deeper understanding of the Hong Kong society.


New non-local degree-seeking students who joined the scheme will be taking care by a host family who are staff members of Lingnan. Although, students will live in student hostels and not living with their host families. The host families will meet and invite the students to join their family gatherings to render care, support and a home feeling away from home for them. Students will first meet their host families at the Welcome Lunch on 20 August. Other meetings/ activities afterwards will be arranged on their own.

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