NUS Non-Graduating (Exchange or Non-Exchange) students may apply for a place in the Halls of Residence and Student Residences. Accommodations at the College of Alice & Peter Tan, Tembusu, Residential College 4 and Cinnamon Colleges are primarily for Non-Graduating students from the colleges' partner universities.
The Halls are known for their vibrant CCA, rich history and culture. Living in the halls is akin to having another family in school altogether. Each hall has its own distinct culture and is led by a hall master and an elected hall committee. Residents are expected to participate actively in hall activities. Meals are catered and residents are required to subscribe to the meal plan.
The Residences offer independent living with opportunities for cross cultural interaction with the international community of students. As Residences offer more privacy, they tend to be quieter than Halls. Students staying in the Residences participate in activities organised by their campus-wide clubs, societies and interest groups.
Colleges provide a unique learning and living environment. Meals are catered and residents are required to subscribe to this catering service.
The hostel rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi and fitted with LAN point for connection to campus network.
- Meals are catered for the halls and colleges (except PGP House), and residents are required to subscribe to the meal plan. For further details, please refer to the page on Hostel Rates.
