I just got into a 1 year LLM program at HKU law and have never been to Hong Kong. I was wondering about housing. There are a number of different on-campus options that are cheap (really cheap). However, on a map, campus seems to be outside the city a bit. I was wondering if living on campus would be difficult to go into the city. Would I be stuck on campus, or is it really close to the city and easily accessable?
I'm not against finding my own place, it just seems about 3 times more expnesive and it just seems so easy to apply for on-campus housing.
Any suggestions? What would be better? Shelling out the money for my own place, a little closer to the city? Or, living on campus for cheap but with rules and being farther from the city?
If campus is not far from the city, I think it would be convenient for me to just live there. But, I'm not sure about the geography or the campus life.
