Temporary Suspension of the Student Union and Residents’ Association

The term of office of the 5th Representative Council of CWCSU has officially ended on 31 January 2019. In a mass email issued by the 5th CWCSURC to all College students on 26 April 2019, it was officially announced that the CWCSU would stop functioning with immediate effect until the 6th CWCSU if officially formed. It was decided by the 5th CWCSURC that the SU Entrance Fee and SU Annual Fee will both be $0 in the academic year 2019–20.

With the temporary suspension of the CWCSU, the 5th Residents’ Association (RA), being a subsidiary student body of the SU, also had to suspend its duties and services simultaneously until a new SU is formed.
