Hostel and 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.
Please note that the hostel rates for air-con rooms and apartments are not inclusive of utilities charges arising from the usage of the air-con unit. A separate charge is applicable on a prepaid or “Pay-As-You-Use” basis. 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.
