Chapter 15 Class/Examination Arrangements during Bad Weather
When Tropical Cyclone Signal No.3 or Amber/Red Rainstorm Warning Signal is in force, all classes and examinations will continue to be held as scheduled, unless otherwise announced by the University.
Announcements made by the Education Bureau (EDB) and Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) DO NOT apply to the University. You should check the University Announcements in The Portal of EdUHK for any special class/examination arrangements.
When Tropical Cyclone Signal No.8 (or above) is in force or will be issued within the next 2 hours (as announced by the Hong Kong Observatory), or “extreme conditions”^ announced by the Government after super typhoon are in force, or the Black Rainstorm Signal is in force, the following arrangements shall apply to all classes and examinations regardless of the mode of learning and teaching:
For Classes and Examinations Not Yet Started
For Classes and Examinations Already Started
^Under certain “extreme conditions” caused by super typhoons, such as serious disruption of public transport services, extensive flooding, major landslides or large-scale power outage after super typhoons, the Government will review the situation (including public transportation and other aspects) and make announcement to the public.
Contingency Arrangement for Examinations during Bad Weather
If an examination administered by the Registry is cancelled because of bad weather, you may concurrently check the Contingency Examination Schedule which is posted on the Registry's website normally three weeks before the examination period. For examinations that are not administered by the Registry, you are requested to contact the lecturer(s) or the Department(s)/Centre(s) concerned for the contingency arrangements.
