In view of heavy demand, only full-time fee paying registered students are eligible to stay in student accommodation provided by the University on a yearly basis (residential year). Short term stay cannot be arranged. Students who accept the housing offers in are committed to pay the hall charges for full residential year (15 August 2014 – 30 June 2015) irrespective of their actual days of stay. Early termination would be considered case by case and on a term-basis. Students who wish to stay during the summer break in 2015 should submit a separate application in March 2015. Details will be announced nearer the time.

Payment Method

* For postgraduate studentship (PGS) recipients:   The charges will be deducted directly from your studentship upon student’s acceptance to an housing offer. Student will be prompted to authorize the direct transfer on the UA Room Offer Online Acceptance Form.

* For other residents who are not PGS recipients: 
The charges are to be paid by installments and in advance of each term. Students should login to the on-line payment system to view their hall charges records and settle the payment by the stated due date. Failure to settle payment by the stipulated deadline will result in cancellation of the housing offer without further notification.
