Overview

  • Only full-time students registered with the National University of Singapore (NUS) are eligible.
  • International students (non-Singaporean/Singapore PR) are required to have the appropriate and valid passes as issued by the Immigration & Custom Authority (ICA) or Ministry of Manpower (MOM) during the course of their stay in an NUS accommodation.
  • International students are assured accommodation in their first two years of their studies in NUS subject to the submission of an accommodation application. However, please also note that this assurance is only valid for semester 1 applications submitted within the stipulated exercise periods.
  • Students are required to be insured under the NUS student insurance scheme or its equivalent throughout their stay in an NUS accommodation.
  • NUS hostels fees are reviewed and adjusted periodically to reflect the cost of providing housing to students. For more information of the latest hostel rates review, please click here.

Please note that you are not eligible to stay in any NUS accommodation if

  • You have outstanding arrears in your accommodation accounts
  • Your official status is designated as a Graduate student

For incoming freshmen and non-KE resident seniors,

  • You will need to apply for a place during the stipulated exercise periods. Application dates can be found here.

For current residents,

  • You will need to reapply for your NUS accommodation each year, and also put King Edward VII Hall as your first choice. Selection will be based on availability and the prevailing Residence Admission Scheme (RAS), which is mainly based on one’s contributions to the hall in the previous year.
