Eligibility

Application for Old Hall are now invited from all current students (excluding successful applicants of Residential Colleges for 2017/18, graduating students and AD students) who would like to apply for residence in the Old Hall.

 

Scoring System

In 2017/18, “Home Distance from HSMC” is the only criterion to assess all applicants for their eligibility for the hall place.

“Hong Kong eTransport” (http://hketransport.gov.hk/?l=1), an on-line platform administered by the Transport Department, is proposed to be used for calculating the travelling time, with the following parameters set.  You may click here for the guideline and click here for the sample dump screen.

  1. Home address refers to student’s official record maintained by the Registry. Address proof showing students names and residential address before the start date of hall application of 2017-18 is required.#
  2. Applicants had to choose "Hang Seng Management College"(Case Sensitive) as the destination for calculating the time required.
  3. Travelling time is calculated using the Hong Kong eTransport, taking into account the following factors:

o    Walking distance: 400m from starting point / destination;

o    "All" (service mode) and "More" (if any) should be selected ;

o    Search results involving time or day specific or temporary transport services normally would not be counted; it would be counted only when they were the only options available.

o    In any case, the shortest travelling time shown in the search results would be used.

o    To ensure objectivity, personal preference and travelling cost would not be taken into consideration.

  1. The travelling time will be converted into home distance scores in accordance with the below table. Maximum score of 50 points would be given to students with a travelling time of 120 minutes or more.
