Question about NTU hall!

Hi everyone! This year, I will be entering NTU for my study! Looking forward to this new lifestyle. Hope I will enjoy my Uni life ^^

I am planning to stay in the hall. But I have very few friends stating in NTU hall. So I need some advices in hall stuff. Normally what you do in hall? And which hall is fun to stay in? I want to get into a fun hall! Is there any differences between each hall?

To know more people in your hall, join JCRC loh, and also their activities, sports, eating out, inter hall games.

The differences of different hall: location and canteen food quality. Hall 1/2 are older with toilets attached their rooms. Hall 3 and above are toilets outside rooms, correct me if I'm wrong.

Hope you'll enjoy!

1st yrs are randomly allocated a hall so you do not get to choose which hall you want to stay in. The only thing you can choose is who your roommate is IF you have a friend who is also a 1st yr student OR you have a elder sibling of the same sex who has to qualify for a room as your roommate.

Every hall will have their own activities such as supper hops, night cycling etc besides the usual block supper. Some have hall productions etc as well. You can also choose to take part in interhall competitions in sports or recreation games of which Hall 3 is usually the sports and overall champ while hall 9 is usually the recreation games champ but of cos such championships only stay with the halls if they continue to get good players to help them win the games.

No, for 1st yrs usually will be with locals and foreigners with foreigners. Never heard a case of locals paired with foreigners for freshies UNLESS the initial roommate who should be a local pull out of the room and the person on the waiting list who move in happens to be a foreigner

If 1st day move in already got AT then he has to be very suay cos most halls don't do that unless it just so suay that there is 1 odd freshie and 1 odd foreigner left out then llst lo.

SAO gives the hall office the list of residents, SAO won't count and assure the numbers are nice and usually the hall officers will do their best to match people as best as they can.

Talked with hall officers before and sometimes its the JCRC etc that 'helps' screw things up cos they will sometimes ask to swop people around to help those who attend hall orientation stay together etc etc

20% of NTU intake is foreigners, add in all the M'sians etc who got S'pore PR and are treated as locals in uni intake, you can except about half the hall residents to be foreigners since NTU has about 20k students and there are about 9000 beds in all the 16 halls.

there's definitely a lot.. esp after last year's massive COP killed so many sinkie applicants.

Just enjoy your hall lah... if you get hall 3 and 16, be prepared to pay for a much higher premium than say the other YOG halls are the old halls...
