During this year's registration, new students are able to register by scanning their Citizen ID card, which simplifies the procedure and saves time. In addition, the university provides a WeChat subscription and an APP, both named as “SCUT Teaching Affairs”, for the students to learn more instant information about their incoming study.
Students are also allowed to check the number of their dormitory building before registration. In recent years, the university has been giving many efforts to improve the facilities of student recommendation. After lengthening the beds in dormitory rooms in 2013, this year, the furniture in East Block 7 and Graduate Student Hostel 2 are also modified to be more suitable for residence.
