Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Q&K International Group Limited (the “Company”)

We have acted as special Cayman Islands legal counsel to the Company in connection with a registration statement on Form F-3 (the “Registration Statement”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on or about the date hereof under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “Securities Act”) and the prospectus forming a part of the registration Statement (the “Prospectus”) through which the Company may offer up to a total amount of US$300,000,000, consisting of (i) Class A ordinary shares, par value US$0.00001 each in the Company (“Class A Ordinary Shares”), which may be represented by American depositary shares (“ADS”), (ii) preferred shares, par value US$0.00001 each in the Company (“Preferred Shares”, and together with the Class A Ordinary Shares, “Equity Securities”, which term includes any Class A Ordinary Shares or Preferred Shares to be issued pursuant to the conversion, exchange or exercise of any other Securities), (iii) warrants to purchase the Class A Ordinary Shares (“Warrants”), (iv) units composed of any combination of Class A Ordinary Shares, ADS, Preferred Shares, Debt Securities or Warrants (“Units), and (v) debt securities (“Debt Securities”, and collectively with the Class A Ordinary Shares, Preferred Shares, Warrants and Units, the “Securities”), or any combination thereof, from time to time.

On the basis of and subject to the foregoing, we are of the opinion that:



The Company is duly incorporated and existing under the laws of the Cayman Islands and, based on the Certificate of Good Standing, is in good standing as at the Certificate Date. Pursuant to the Companies Act (“Act”), a company is deemed to be in good standing if all fees and penalties under the Act have been paid and the Registrar of Companies has no knowledge that the company is in default under the Act.



Based solely on our review of the memorandum of association of the Company, the Company has an authorised share capital of US$500,000 divided into 50,000,000,000 shares of a nominal or par value of US$0.00001 each, of which 37,500,000,000 shall be designated as Class A ordinary shares of a nominal or par value of US$0.00001 each, 2,500,000,000 shall be designated as Class B ordinary shares of a nominal or par value of US$0.00001 each and 10,000,000,000 shall be designated as preferred shares of a nominal or par value of US$0.00001 each.
