4. Housing application

Undergraduate exchange students who are applying for a semester or full year exchange to NUS can indicate their interest for on-campus housing via the NG admission application system. Instructions on how and when to apply for housing will be included in the Acceptance Letters students receive when admitted into the exchange programme at NUS.

Students should expect to receive their Acceptance Letters via email in mid-June, for those coming in August, or mid-November, for those coming in January. Students can also check if they have been offered on-campus housing via the system.

Please note that placement into on-campus housing is not guaranteed. Due to the limited number of rooms available on campus, some students may receive Acceptance Letters advising them to search for private accommodation.

For Undergraduate exchange students who receive advice in their Acceptance Letters to search for private accommodation, as well as non-exchange (fee paying) and Graduate exchange students, please refer to private housing options here.

For enquiries on housing, please refer to the Office of Student Affairs information here.
