If you do not have the right of abode/right to land in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), you must apply for a HKSAR student visa for the purpose of education. You are strongly recommended to apply for a student visa through Center of Development and Resources for Students (CEDARS) or China Affairs Office (CAO). Normally, the Hong Kong Immigration Department takes around 8-10 weeks for processing an individual application upon receiving the complete set of documents (the actual processing time could be longer for individual cases, especially if your documents are incomplete or you cannot confirm your study programme).
The University of Hong Kong offers Hall of Residence/Residential College to Full-time Undergraduate Students. You may apply to live in one of the halls and colleges.
