Student Housing on NTU Campus
NTU Halls of Residence are home to some 14,000 undergraduate students. This community forms a massive family unit, actively engaging in social exchange and mutual help. Living in a hall is a unique experience that can only be reminisced about.

With the exception of Halls 1 & 2 which offer shared suite-style attached shower and toilets and Nanyang Crescent Halls (Saraca, Tamarind and Meranti) have some single rooms with attached shower and toilet , all halls have gender specific communal showers and toilets. All halls are co-ed by floor or wing and offer single and twin-sharing rooms. Twin-sharing rooms are shared by residents of the same gender.
Rooms are furnished with a study table, chair, shelving, bed, mattress and wardrobe per resident, and are equipped with network points connected to the university's computer network.

Assignments to preferred room types are subject to availability from the rooms set aside for new students.
