Hostel & Meal Plan Rates

Hostel and Meal Plan Rates

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.

Utilities Charges
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 Hostel Management Office.

Meal Plans
Students staying in the Halls, Residential Colleges and NUS College are required to subscribe to meal plans. Residents may opt for Asian style vegetarian or halal meals. In the event that the catered meals do not meet your dietary needs, it may be advisable for you to select a hostel without a compulsory meal plan. No meal plan during vacation periods. In the event that the meal rates are pro-rated, a daily rate will be used. (Meal rate / total number of meal days) = daily rate (rounded up to the nearest 5 cents).
