HAS > Graduates > Hostel & Meal Plan Rates

NUS hostels fees are reviewed and adjusted periodically to reflect the cost of providing housing to students.  The revenues collected from hostel fees are expected to meet the operating cost, in particular the cyclical maintenance and repair cost of our hostels. For more information of the latest hostel rates review, please click here.

In order to meet the increasing operating cost of the hostels, the University is implementing a pricing differential in hostel fees for full tuition-paying graduate students and those in self-funded graduate programmes.

The subsidized hostel rates shown below are applicable to graduate students in government-subsidized programmes who are paying subsidized tuition fees. To find out whether you are paying subsidized tuition fees, please contact your faculty/department administrator.

The non-subsidized hostel rates are applicable to students in self-funding graduate programme as well as graduate students in government subsidized programme paying full tuition fees.

Please note that the hostel rates for rooms at UTown Residence are not inclusive of utilities charges arising from the usage of the air conditioning unit. A separate charge is applicable via a prepaid or “Pay as You Use” scheme. The hostels reserve the right to charge miscellaneous fees such as registration fee, year book fee, etc to its residents. For more information on these fees, please contact the Hostel Management Office.
