You may check in directly at the locations as listed below. The Hall / Management Office has staff on duty 24 hours each day and they can help you check in any time upon your arrival.
Residents who are unable to check in within the period specified by the Student Housing and Residential Life Office (SHRL) are required to inform SHRL of their late check-in date by writing to pghousing@ust.hk. Failure to check in within the specified period without prior notification will result in cancellation of offered hall place.
