Finding off-campus accommodation in Hong Kong can be a challenge as you may not understand the local law and the rental procedure well. Also, the rent for a private apartment in Hong Kong is relatively high and many landlords tend to consider only leases of at least one year. Yet, living off-campus could be fun – you will enjoy more freedom and have a chance to taste the local culture.
Before searching for apartments, it is necessary for you to understand thoroughly the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance and the rental procedure: https://lces.osa.cuhk.edu.hk/non-local-services/housing/off-campus/rental-procedure/.
