NUS hostels fees are reviewed and adjusted periodically to reflect the cost of providing housing to students. The revenues collected from hostel fees are expected to meet the operating cost, in particular the cyclical maintenance and repair cost of our hostels.
In order to meet the increasing operating cost of the hostels, the University has implemented a pricing differential in hostel fees.
The subsidized hostel rates are applicable to students in MOE-subsidized graduate programmes, while the non-subsidized hostel rates are applicable to students in self-funding graduate programmes. To find out whether you are in MOE-subsidized programmes or not, please contact your faculty/department administrator.
Please note that the hostel rates for rooms at UTown Residence are not inclusive of utilities charges arising from the usage of the air conditioning unit. A separate charge is applicable via a prepaid “Pay as You Use” scheme. The hostels reserve the right to charge miscellaneous fees such as registration fee, year book fee, etc to its residents. For more information on these fees, please contact the respective Hostel Management Office.
