You can't log in until July 21st. That's the day you can start booking your accommodation. If you are a scholarship winner, you don't have to book accommodation, but if you are a self supported student, it's a very slim chance that you can actually get a room. I've heard that a few minutes after you can start booking accommodation, it's already fully booked. 

By the way, what will you study?

Thanks for the reply. I find the situation somewhat confusing since I am not (yet) a winner, but a nominee. ...since the final announcements have yet to be made. The problem is that the bookings have to be made this week. The website specifically says that my student ID does not exist, not just that I cannot login. Hence my concern. 

 

I am a Master candidate in Environmental Science and Engineering (and Management).

I have the same issue and I am also nominated for CSC in a Ph.D. Program. I have contacted the graduate office and I was told that you don't have to book a room until the results are out. From what I understood, there are rooms reserved for THU CSC nominees. If you don't win the scholarship, then you have to pay for the tuition fees and living costs by yourself.

Hey guys. I have a question about the admission package. Have you already received yours? How long did it take from the day you received the email from Tsinghua saying they will be mailing the package till the day you actually received it? The point is I am from Russia and our postal services are no good. So I am a bit worried about that. Thanks!

Thanks @Dgengy

 

@Alexandra21, I received the email about sending the admission package two days AFTER it was dispatched. Subsequently, I received the package two day later. So in total 4-5 days delivery time. You should have a tracking code that tells you where the package is.

1. The application system is on http://www.thutraining.com .  

To use your Student ID No. and birth date to log in. Admitted students can check their student No. in our application system.

Graduate Students (Masters and Ph.D.):  8:30 AM July 20, 2017 – 8:00 AM July 21, 2017;
Since the available rooms are limited, first come, first served.
International students sponsored by Chinese government scholarship (full scholarship) do not need to book dormitory room.

International students admitted to the joint programs should follow another schedule, which is attached to the admission letter.


3. Use your student ID number and birthdate to log in. The student ID (10 digits) is printed on the left top of your Admission Notice. The birthdate shall be input in the format “yyyy-mm-dd” (e.g., use “1990-07-01” for July 1st, 1990.).

 

4. A deposit of RMB 500 is required for the reservation. Please prepare a bank card which supports online payment. On the English version of the system, Visa card and MasterCard are accepted; on the Chinese version, only China UnionPay cards (issued by Chinese banks) are accepted. If you fail to pay within 1 hour after your booking, the reservation will be cancelled.

 

5. With a successful reservation of dormitory, please register at the university on the designated dates, which is indicated on your Admission Notice. The reservation will be cancelled after 3 days delay, and the deposit cannot be refunded.

 

6. The reserved room is available from August 16th, 2017 for undergraduate students and graduate students. Too early check-in before that time will not be entertained.

 

7. You need to pay for the room rental of the whole semester (to February 5th, 2018) upon check-in, plus 200 RMB for deposit. The price is listed in the table.

 

8. If you have any question or problem in booking the room, please send emails to [email protected] Remember to clearly specify your student ID number and your name to make the staff help you more easily and better.

 

9. The students failing to book the rooms need to arrange off-campus housing by themselves.

@Dgengy @chrisdealemania Thanks for the replies) I have asked for the tracking code from my department today, they sent it and it appears that they mailed the documents via SF express, not via DHL, so it's department-specific. SF express is kinda slow, but at least I have a tracking code now)

Just finished booking online, I was surprised that the AB rooms were gone so fast (was expecting single rooms to be booked up first). Hope everyone got their choice accommodations!

Can anyone log in the accommodation booking website? I got the scholarship and they said that they'll book the room for me, but I would love to be able to log in and check. However, it gives me an error saying that such student ID doesn't exist...

 

I'm trying to log in here: http://www.thutraining.com

And here: http://hf.myhome.tsinghua.edu.cn

I have received another email from Tsinghua Graduate office

 

Quote

We have reserved rooms for all the CGS nominated students.

 

There is no need to book a room if you are nominated.

Any way to find out what rooms we got? It seems that CGS students can't log into the accommodation portal.

@Rytis95 I think it is possible, but it is a hassle to go through that process. Normally, for an MSc student you will get a double room and for a Ph.D. student, you will get a single room.
