    One more question. How difficult is to find an apartment that includes some furniture, fridge, stove, washing machine, etc...
    virtually all apartments will not have furniture, maybe a cooker and a fridge that's it.

    if you want furniture, cooker, fridge, tv and washing machine, a service apartment is probably best, but it will be pricey

    if you want cheap furniture, check the other HK asia expat site for cheap or even free furniture, very frequent as well.

    Why don't you look at the properties that are located right across from PolyU? There are some serviced apartments. I always get confused about the names of the different developments, but there's something like Harbor View and Harbor Front. My (PolyU) colleague rents a serviced (i.e. furnished) apartment for around $14,000 and it's over 600sq/ft so maybe you can find something smaller in your budget? Short walk to PolyU from there.

    And the relevance of your place in Mui Wo to someone studying at PolyU is what? That would be a very long and expensive commute!

    I have a newly remodeled furnished apartment (just by Shatin train station which is only 4 railway stops from Poly U. Wonder how long will you need the accommodation for?
