HAS > Graduates > Hostel Options

Full-time NUS Graduate students may apply for a place in selected Student Residences. The Residences offer independent living in a communal setting with opportunities for cross cultural interaction.

Some rooms have been designed specifically for students with special needs. If you have special needs due to a serious medical condition, you should indicate them clearly in your application form so that we can allocate the most appropriate room available.

Being a research intensive university, new Graduate students by Research are prioritised for campus accommodation. As demand far exceeds supply, not all applicants will be successful in their applications.

With the present high demand for campus housing, Graduate students by Coursework are unlikely to be offered campus accommodation.  It is advisable to budget for off-campus housing and source for one early.  More information on off-campus housing can be found here.
