Previous research investigated student development through university residential education, but few have explored the residential aim and its alignment with the university aim. Through thematic analysis of interviews from 47 residential students in a university in Hong Kong, this study examines the alignment of residential and university aims from the perspective of student residents using Astin’s Input-Environment-Output Model. The theoretical implication lies in illustrating the dynamics of Astin’s model and complementing it with the looping effect, which helps analyse multiple elements in one particular scenario and reveal the correlation among interaction, culture, communication and collaboration. This study also attempts to promote the understanding of residential aims conveyed by hall activities and their alignment with university aims.
