All of u take the accommodation at Evans and have a pity party at Mr. Pratas... :p neway trust me on one thing... Even though the accommodation at utown is good it probably was a bit boring with not many law college college friends around... And it's good to be at Evans as u can wake up at 845 for a 9 o clock class... It takes not more than 5 min to reach the class from Evans...

Hey so according to you Evans would be the best option for us right now? How about sic? And these HDB apartments? How are those?

Yup evans would be the best... I personally don't like SIC... and HDB's would cost quiet a bit toward that part of the town... If u r serious about HDB's and don't mind travelling, u can get some in Bukit Batok and Cho Chu Kang... If u guys want I can give no. of a broker here who is my friend... He's an Indian...

It is about 8-10 Kms i guess and u have enough buses from commonwealth... But it is bit costly... Probably u can look out at holland village... U have bus services from there too..

thank you for ur guidance karthik. most hostels that offer a unit/aprt, they do so on a twin sharing basis. i am looking for a hostel that offers units with individual rooms. and none of them seem to do so.

Hi,

I am an Indian student at NUS (2013-14) and my hostel application has been unsuccessful.

I am now looking for private accommodation. From what I understand, Kent Ridge is far from the law school (Bukit Timah) campus but has other factors going in its favour such as excellent studying facilities, bustling university campus and according to some, cheaper rents.

How are the other Indian students going about their accommodation? Are they choosing Kent Ridge or Bukit Timah or a third locality altogether?

Although I haven't made up my mind about roommates versus living alone, in case somebody is looking for a girl roommate, do message me.

Thanks a lot,

P

Hello folks,

I know I haven't got standing to be crashing your 'pity party', but if I may I'd just like to point out (or make a friendly reminder, since it's such a trite point that it definitely isn't news to anyone) that one of the nice things about studying abroad is to mix with people from other backgrounds - including nationalities and academic fields. It's genuinely boring to hang out with law people too much of the time - I personally benefited immensely from living at UTown (though I'm a local and it's actually more convenient to go to BTC from my own home than from UTown) because I spent a lot of time with people coming from various places doing other subjects.

I do notice that students from some places like to bunch together (I won't name them but I have at least three nation-states in mind based on my own personal experiences studying in two separate countries and going off to a third soon) when it comes to things like accommodation. I guess there are definitely practical advantages to that. But it would be quite a waste to just hang out amongst students of a single nationality. I am fully aware (and I am ashamed, somewhat) of the fact that my countrymen and women in school (i.e. Singaporean students) aren't often terribly friendly or accepting or welcoming of foreign students - especially those from nation-states that exhibit relatively pronounced agglomeration - but all I can say is, if you - the incoming foreigners - don't make an effort to be friendly, it's even more difficult to break the ice.

Just one last observation (I don't make any normative claims when it comes to this, it's just FYI). Singaporean students by and large hate it when students ask too many questions in class. It doesn't turn on background or nationality; it's the act that local students don't like. I know this because I used to do that a lot. Whether you would consider toning down the questioning is your own affair, but I feel it is better that you know the potential costs upfront when planning your affairs.

Good luck with accommodation and the academic year ahead!

Does anyone know of any seniors who'd read this course before? Are there any subjects there are killer papers, really easy to pass etc? Please share? Would really help in our selection, just in case we end up reading the toughest papers in the same semester!
