  • From 8.30am to 5.30pm (Mon -Thur)

Note: Should a student's arrival or departure date fall on the weekend or outside of the Hall of Residence opening hours, students are required to source for their own accommodation. For example, if your summer program starts on 1 July 2019 (Monday), you can check in to our on-campus accommodation by 27 June 2019 (Thursday) at the lastest. The Friday before the commencement of the course will be reserved for orientation activites and a Singapore City Tour, which is compulsory for all incoming summer students.  Check-in will not be available from 29 - 30 June as it falls over the weekend and the offices of the Halls of Residences are not open. If the offices of the Halls of Residences are closed, students can check in to the Nanyang Executive Centre (NEC),  which is located on NTU campus and is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. The on-campus accomodation paid for your Summer programme does not include housing at the NEC.  Any stay in NEC will incur a separate charge, payable to NEC directly.

The period of stay in the Halls of Residence will be determinded by the approved period of the study programme stipulated on the Letter of Enrolment issued by NTU.
