Secured a place to study in Nanyang Technological University (NTU)? If you’d rather not stay on campus and prefer to stay in off-campus accommodation instead, some of the popular residential areas you can consider are Jurong West, Boon Lay or Pioneer.
First off, NTU is situated near Jurong West, which is at the Western part of Singapore. The two closest stations to NTU are Boon Lay and Pioneer, which are both part of the East-West line. There are buses from both stations which can drop you off at NTU.
As NTU lies closer towards the end of the Western part of the East-West MRT line, it would make sense for you to live near that part of Singapore (as opposed to the Eastern part of Singapore). Otherwise, you will have to spend a significant amount of time travelling to uni!
One of the accommodation options students can consider is renting a room in a co-living unit. This is because the rental also includes housekeeping services, utilities, wifi and regular maintenance such as aircon servicing. Plus, co-living units are fully-furnished. This makes it very easy and convenient for students as the units are move-in ready.
