The Physical Education Section plans and organises sports activities for students. We believe that sports are not only essential to physical health but also necessary for mental health and character development. Therefore, the Physical Education Section provides a platform for students to demonstrate their talents, develop sportsmanship and to build friendships. We have internal sports activities and competitions such as walk and virtual run challenges, SYU Cups (樹仁盃) for different sports including basketball, badminton, table tennis, etc. In particular, the University will organize an annual Athletic meet that provides students with an opportunity to showcase their remarkable talents and to cultivate team spirit. Apart from internal sports activities, the PE section will periodically invite external organizations and sports experts to promote new sport skills and technology. Our students are also welcome to join the University's sport teams and participate in local and overseas sport competitions.
The on-campus residence halls are located at the Residential & Amenities Complex and the Research Complex. More than 1000 residential places have been provided for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The communal facilities such as pantries, laundry rooms, common rooms, gym rooms, study rooms, indoor sports court and band room are fully equipped.
The Hall Management Unit and Hall Ambassadors work together all year round to organize unique festive events and theme-based activities for promoting a vibrant and positive living-learning environment for the residents and staff.
