The Residential College integrates accommodation, self-study, discussion, leisure and social interaction. The multifunctional architectural design on the first floor (reading room, classroom, discussion room, gym, band room, etc.) provides students with an intimate and supportive study and living environment. Each student has a separate living space, while sharing common areas such as the living room and the bathroom.

The Residential College is headed by Professor Lap-Chee Tsui, a famous educator and former president of the University of Hong Kong. He guides students' development by implementing the "Five in One" tutorial system, and devotes himself to cultivating students' ability to adapt to international life, cross-cultural communication, global vision and responsibility.
