Residential College System
The Residential College (hereinafter referred to as “the College”) system at the University of Macau is a comprehensive community-based educational platform that embodies the University’s 4-in-1 education model and student-centered philosophy of whole-person education. The College system works in conjunction with faculties, institutes, Student Affairs Office, and Office of Sports Affairs in a synergistic manner to foster student development. The core focus of the College system is to provide undergraduate students with an experiential curriculum designed to promote whole-person education, enabling them to position themselves as individuals with firm roots in Macao, while at the same time being committed to participating in the development of the Greater Bay Area, as well as integrating themselves into national development while reaching out to the world..
The College system cultivates students to become exemplary citizens with affection for home country. College education aims to enhance the qualities and competencies of students in terms of responsible citizenship, global competitiveness, knowledge integration, teamwork and collaboration, service and leadership, cultural engagement, and healthy lifestyle. In order to develop these seven competencies in students, College education offers five major experiential education measures, including activity learning, communal meal participation education, academic support, RC courses and pastoral care.
Students from different academic disciplines live together in colleges, creating a stimulating learning environment in which they learn from each other, broaden their intellectual horizons, and communicate and work with people of different backgrounds and cultures. The educational environment within the College system provides opportunities for the active participation of students in the preparation and planning of activities. Students not only participate in these activities but also play an active role in organizing and promoting College education. Through their involvement in different stages and experiences, from planning to feedback, students have the opportunity to showcase their strengths and enhance their competencies.
There are currently ten colleges in UM, namely Cheong Kun Lun College, Chao Kuang Piu College, Choi Kai Yau College, Cheng Yu Tung College, Henry Fok Pearl Jubilee College, Lui Che Woo College, Ma Man Kei and Lo Pak Sam College, Moon Chun Memorial College, Shiu Pong College, and Stanley Ho East Asia College. Each RC is home to about 500 resident students and 270 non-resident students.
