University Cultural Centre and U Town
National University of Singapore
NUS University Town™, or UTown® for short, is finally open after several years of planning and building! Designed for the entire NUS community, UTown is strategically integrated with the Kent Ridge Campus via a vehicle and pedestrian bridge. An educational hub complete with residential spaces, teaching facilities and study clusters, UTown has created a lively intellectual, social and cultural environment that distinguishes the University through excellence in learning and student engagement.
Leading the charge towards environmental sustainability, UTown is one of the latest green building projects undertaken by NUS. Specially built around existing trees, the state-of-the-art Education Resource Centre was awarded the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore’s Green Mark Platinum. Similarly, the Stephen Riady Centre was awarded the Green Mark Platinum. The UTown Residence received the Green Mark Gold Plus while the first two residential colleges, Cinnamon College (USP) and Tembusu College, were awarded the Green Mark Gold.
Hop onto NUS’ Internal Shuttle Bus D to NUS’ newest hangout! Alternatively, you may walk or cycle to UTown via College Link, also known as the link bridge. A host of educational and social facilities including ample spaces for self-study and peer learning are waiting to be discovered.
