Hall O'Camp (FYE Orientation)

Let the journey begin 

First Year Experience (FYE) @ Residence Program is a hall-based residential life education program for first-year students. It aims to smooth first-year students' transition and adaptation to new University life and to engage students in residential life (Reslife) programs of hall communities.

All first year students who join FYE must attend a two days and one night orientation camp (Hall O’camp). During the Hall O’camp, first-year students joining FYE will have chances to get familiar with UST campus and to form bonds and integrate with other new students and SUG mentors, which help them achieving a fruitful Reslife in HKUST. Reserve yourself from Aug 18 to 19.
