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.
Please note that the hostel rates for rooms at UTown Residence and Colleges are not inclusive of utilities charges arising from the usage of the air conditioning unit. A separate charge is applicable via a prepaid or “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 Hostel Management Office.
