We offer a global and Asian approach to education, research, and entrepreneurship. The University is especially renowned for our research in engineering, science and technology, biomedical sciences, and the humanities and social sciences. NUS' main campus since 1980, the sprawling 150-hectare Kent Ridge Campus, hosts most of the University's academic, research, and administrative facilities. It is also a bustling hub of student life, with student residences, sports facilities, and venues for arts and cultural activities. University Town (UTown) – an extension of the Kent Ridge Campus — offers a unique residential college concept and a host of educational and recreational spaces for interaction, peer learning, and personal development. UTown is also home to Yale-NUS College, Singapore's first liberal arts college with a fully residential program. At NUS, we provide a holistic education.

Today, more than 100 years on, as Singapore's flagship university, we continue to serve the country and society. Learn more about our rich heritage and the leaders of this institution.
