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. The last review and adjustment was carried out in 2017. To moderate the full cost impact on students, the hostel fees would increase gradually over 3 years from AY2017/2018, AY2018/2019 and AY2019/2020.
The subsidised hostel rates are applicable to students in MOE-subsidised graduate programmes, while the non-subsidised hostel rates are applicable to students in self-funding graduate programmes. To find out whether you are in MOE-subsidised programmes or not, please contact your faculty/department administrator.
Please note that the hostel rates for air-con rooms and apartments are not inclusive of utilities charges arising from the usage of the air-con unit. A separate charge is applicable on a prepaid or "Pay-As-You-Use” basis. 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.
