Discover a brand new campus at Yale-NUS College, and learn to be independent with the help of our incredible staff. Known for its goal of educating young people for leadership in an interconnected world, it’s easy to see why Yale-NUS is an exciting place to learn.
Our home is one of 3 residential colleges on-campus at Yale-NUS. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff who live together in one residence hall.
Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your resident counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.
Share an in-room bathroom with just your suitemates.
Eat in the modern dining hall. Enjoy two meals daily, and one on weekends, while on campus. Choose from daily options at the salad bar, stir fry station, pasta counter, dessert bar, and more. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.
For lunch, explore restaurants, cafes, and sandwich shops in UTown or enjoy a picnic in the courtyard. (Lunch is not included in tuition.)
Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and UTown (our ‘home area’) in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.
Not feeling well? Summer Discovery staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with University Health Center or National University Hospital.
There are many great opportunities to help you stay fit and have fun in Singapore this summer. Go for a run, play soccer with friends, or spend time at the Sports Hall.
Yale-NUS College is located right next to the National University of Singapore in UTown, an educational hub with a lively intellectual, social, and cultural environment with nearby coffee shops, bookstores and shopping. You can hop on the bus with friends and your RC to downtown Singapore to experience great dining and shopping, or take a day trip to visit the exciting attractions on the island of Sentosa. Spend your summer discovering all that Singapore has to offer. It’s all included in your tuition.
