Special Requirement for Vaccination/COVID-testing in the AY 2021-22 for Student Hostel Residents

Hostel residents are required to be fully vaccinated (i.e., at least 14 days after the final dose of a recognized vaccine against COVID-19 before the residential period starts). Those who cannot be vaccinated for medical/personal reasons are required to have COVID-19 testing once every 7 days (effective from 14 Jan 2022) during the residential period. Residents who fail to comply with this requirement will be barred from entering hostels until the requirement is fulfilled and confirmed by the University.

Residents are required to upload the valid vaccination proof or valid test result to the University online system for Warden Offices to check at least 3 calendar days before check-in. Please refer to the below documents for details:

Campus Vaccination Requirements and Campus Entry Permit

Student hostel residents should upload their vaccine/ COVID-19 regular test result via the “COVID-19 Vaccination & Testing Record System for Student Residents” in myLingnan Portal. The data will be automatically transferred to the new Campus Entry Permit System. Hostel residents are NOT required to upload their records again in the Campus Entry Permit System. If you are current hostel resident from Term One to Term Two and with vaccination record uploaded and approved already, you only need to generate the Campus Entry Permit via the “LU Mobile” app for campus access. Please be reminded to check the guidelines from OCPA on how to obtain a Campus Entry Permit via the “LU Mobile” app. Please be sure to download LU Mobile app for Campus Entry Permit. Hostel residents are still needed to show their Campus Entry Permit for entering the campus.


  1. Submit your vaccination record (if you are fully vaccinated) / the negative COVID-19 testing result (if you are not fully vaccinated; the test should be conducted within 7-day before your check-in) via myLingnan Portal. Your Warden Office will check your record and inform you whether your check-in is approved or not. When you receive the Approval (not Acknowledgement) email from your Warden Office, you could proceed to check in.
