Submission via other channels will NOT be considered. For complex requests, we may need more time to review the request and the circumstances, and we would like to seek your understanding should there be any delay.

Due to overwhelming demand and limited availability of campus housing, on-campus housing is not guaranteed. On-campus housing for appeal request is not guaranteed and subject to availability. All appeals are considered objectively on a case-by-case basis and will be allocated carefully to students with genuine need.

Only submit your appeal application if you are truly in need. Further appeals from the same student will not be processed. In the event that the appeal remains as unsuccessful, please be assured that it has been thoroughly reviewed. Your appeal will be re-considered in subsequent rounds if there are any available rooms due to cancellations from late July. Students are highly encouraged to source for alternative housing, you may find some resources for off-campus housing here.
