Living together in style and comfort in Singapore

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. 


  • Live in a single room in a suite of 4-6 people.
  • Share an in-room bathroom with just your suitemates.

  • Every air-conditioned room includes a bed, study desk, closet, sink, and WiFi.
  • Free laundry facilities, sky garden, and Summer Discovery office are all in our residence hall.
  • Live a short walk from the academic buildings and UTown, the heart of the neighboring National University of Singapore campus.


Enjoy two meals daily, and one on weekends, while on campus. Choose from daily options. 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.


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.
