Financial Aid

On 5 January 2022, NUS has announced a major hostel transformation. A new residential living model – House – will be introduced in AY2022/2023. The House model will focus on proactive pastoral care and peer mentorship providing academic and non-academic guidance. As a start, there will be two Houses: Pioneer House and LightHouse@PGP. Henceforth, NUS students will have four residential living models to choose from – Halls of Residence, Houses, Residential Colleges, and Student Residences. More details will be available from February 2022.

Undergraduate students who require financial aid for their living and/or accommodation expenses and meet the award criteria may be offered, by the University’s Office of Financial Aid (under Office of Admissions), a financial aid package comprising:

  • NUS Study Loan which provides a living allowance of S$3,600 a year;
  • Bursary of generally not less than S$500 a year;
  • Subsistence loan and/or work-study assistance.

In addition, each of the six halls offer some form of financial assistance. Hall residents may check with the respective Hall Management Office on the application procedure.
