Residential Colleges

The University of Macau’s residential college (RC) system provides a platform for integrative learning based on the University’s 4-in-1 education model with the goal of producing well-rounded graduates equipped for the challenges of life emotionally, morally and intellectually. Students are given the opportunity to cultivate skills and sensibilities of good citizenship committed to their motherland and Macao in today’s global world with a sincere heart. They learn to take an active role as honest, incorruptible, law-abiding and public-spirited citizens to improve the quality of life and public good. Furthermore, the RC’s communal living and activities help students develop leadership and interpersonal relationship skills while enriching their lives through cultural engagement and healthy lifestyles.

Students from different academic disciplines live together in each RC, thereby creating a stimulating learning environment in which they can broaden their intellectual horizons and work with people of different backgrounds. Learning from such experiences would be applied effectively in real-life situations once they enter the workforce after graduation. A dedicated team of RC’s Residential and Non-Residential Fellows offer academic support by conducting non-mandatory tutorials in disciplinary studies, general education programs, and the enhancement of language skills.

Each RC has its own dining hall and courtyard as well as spaces that serve specific purposes (e.g., classroom, study room, meeting room, common room, music room, gym, laundry room). The RCs offer a wide variety of activities and social events, including High Table Dinners, Master’s Dinners, a series of talks by internal and external guest speakers, activities of special interest groups, exchange activities with other institutions, community service events, entrepreneurial training projects, and Language Tables. English- and Chinese-speaking debating tournaments as well as sporting, cheerleading, singing, and dancing competitions are some of the RC highlights that create an active campus life and vibrant residential community.

The two-semester residency requirement is a critical part of the undergraduate experience at the University of Macau. Most students fulfill the residency requirement during their first year at the University. Students are also required to complete the CPED1000 (RC course), attend at least one of the High Table Dinners, and give a group project presentation, typically in their second year of study.
