Campus Access Control Measures: FAQs for alumni

Alumni Campus Access Control Measures: FAQs for alumni  

To enter the campus, you must fulfil the latest vaccination requirements for campus access announced by the University (details), and take rapid antigen test using self-testing kit and get negative result on the day you enter the campus.

When enter the campus, you are required to:

(1) scan the QR code for campus visit generated with your alumni e-card (please refer to Q2 for details);
(2) complete the campus access control registration;
(3) provide the reason for the visit;
(4) scan the QR code of the campus concerned with the LeaveHomeSafe app at the entrance;
(5) show the QR code of either your electronic vaccination record, recovery record, or Exemption Certificate (details) (If you are using a paper Exemption Certificate, you will have to present the original Exemption Certificate); and
(6) keep the test record and present it to our security guards when necessary.

Also, following the Government's announcement of the addition of the Red Code and Amber Code into the Vaccine Pass to differentiate persons with higher risk of infection, the University has updated the campus access control arrangements, in which alumni under the category of Red Code and Amber Code are not allowed to enter the campus.

Remarks: you may also present your Alumni Link Card or identification letter for alumni identity proof to our security guards at the entrance up to 31 December 2022.

  • The Vaccination/Testing Reporting System (VTRS) is now open to the Ordinary Member/ Life Ordinary Member of the Hong Kong Metropolitan University Alumni Association (HKMUAA) (details). You can download the mobile application HKMU Alumni+ to activate your alumni e-card and register as an HKMUAA member (details).
  • Upon successful registration, you should input your vaccination and testing record into the VTRS of the app to receive the QR code for campus visit after verification.

  • If you have been fully vaccinated, you will receive the QR code for campus visit in your alumni e-card immediately after inputting the vaccination record to VTRS.
  • If you have NOT been fully vaccinated, you will have to upload relevant testing, recovery or exemption record, and receive the QR code for campus visit after verification.

When the relevant testing, recovery or exemption record is expired and invalid, the QR code for campus visit would then disappear. If you would like to visit the campuses, you will need to update the relevant record in the VTRS.

If you have not yet joined HKMUAA or you are not an Ordinary/Life Ordinary Member of HKMUAA, please contact the Alumni Affairs Unit (AAU) via email at alumni@hkmu.edu.hk 3 working days before your entry to the campus with the following details:
