The Student Affairs Office provides support services to International, Mainland and Taiwan students throughout their course of studies at the University. A wide range of services and activities including orientation programme, cultural activities, festival gatherings, and personal guidance are offered to help students gain a better understanding of the Hong Kong community, adjust to study and campus life, foster mutual support, as well as facilitate cultural exchange among all students.

The Student Affairs Office has prepared a Welcoming Booklet for Non-local Students, in order to help Non-local students better adjust to their campus life in Hong Kong.
