All the information we were given before leaving Sweden was very clear and descriptive. Everything was divided into different emails and HKU wrote lists on what to do, step by step. Even when arriving the information was clear and precise and we were given private tours in the school. In the process of applying for HKU it was also necessary to apply for a student accommodation, which I did. I was assigned a spot in a student apartment and this apartment I shared with five other people. Four from mainland China and one from Sweden. The apartment had a kitchen, restroom, living room and two bedrooms where we stayed three in each room. We all had a bunkbed on our own with a desk underneath. The apartment did not have the best standard I´ve experienced but it worked and I am happy I had somewhere to live. It was also relatively cheap, only around 6000 HKD for one semester.
Since the kitchen facilities was relatively restricted I ate out almost every day. But since the rent for the apartment was so low and also that it is relatively cheap to eat out in Hong Kong, I figured it was ok anyways. Of course, it depends on what kind of restaurant you go to, but the prices can range somewhere between 30-200 HKD for each meal. Hong Kong is really amazing because you can find both cheap and expensive shopping, it all depends on what you are looking for. There are both really cheap markets and super expensive malls to look for things.
