Halls of Residence

The Halls of Residence are vibrant communities dedicated to experiential learning.

Imagine living in a close-knit environment that provides a unique learning experience that challenges your thinking, hones your analytical skills and, above all, leverages on the strength in diversity. That is what the Halls offer you: a chance to explore new interests, pursue fresh experiences, and engage in hands-on learning in this unique blend of living and learning.

Opportunities abound here from leadership programmes to activities that broaden and deepen pursuits in culture and the arts, sports, and intellectual interests. You can contribute in meaningful ways to the local community through community service, or beyond by embarking on overseas community projects.

Living in the Halls also offers the convenience of taking some of your General Education modules, namely Quantitative Reasoning (GER1000H), Asking Questions (GEQ1000H), and Communication and Critical Thinking for Community Leadership (GET1034) in your Hall.  In addition, Hall residents are given the priority to enrol in the university’s only sports-based module Understanding Body, Mind and Culture through Sport (GEH1063), which was developed by the Halls.

There are seven Halls on Kent Ridge Campus, each with its own unique tradition and heritage.
