Our Island-State


The Singapore Spirit

 

We are a city fuelled by passion and pride. Around every corner, incredible experiences are being crafted, cooked, painted, designed, grown or built by locals who share a common trait: passion. Like them, you’ll be empowered to do what you love in this city of limitless possibilities—whether you’re a foodie, explorer, collector, socialiser, action seeker or culture shaper.

The story of Singapore is one of trials, tribulations and triumphs. In a short span of just over 50 years, we have evolved from a colony to a city-state with our own unique identity, forged by a spirit of never settling. And it’s this spirit that’s imbued into the architectural wonders, lush parks, proud heritage, world-class attractions and amazing food of the cosmopolitan metropolis you see today.

Accommodation

Dorms by PSB Academy

If you are an international student looking for an environment that fosters living-learning with activities to engage you, stay at Dorms by PSB Academy:

 

Common Types of Accommodation

  • Shared House / Apartment
    A group of students can get together to rent a house or a flat, and share amenities such as living room, kitchen, bathroom and toilet. Residents do their own cleaning and may have to pay their own utility bills. Monthly rental range:  S$1500 - S$5,000

  • Room in Owner-occupied Apartments
    Housing Development Board (HDB) flats, as it is known, is the most common type of housing for international students. A student rents a vacant room in a flat occupied by the owner and will be required to negotiate with the owner on the use of amenities like washing machine, cooking facilities, telephone, television, internet access, etc. Monthty rental range:  S$500 - S$1,500

  • Private Student Hostels
    A number of privately run hostels take in foreigners that hold a Student’s Pass Card issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Each hostel has its own range of charges for different room-types and facilities. Monthly rental range:  S$400 - S$1,200

 

It is not advisable to look for housing by mail or by phone from unfamiliar sources. Where possible, you should meet your prospective landlord and inspect the accommodation. It is also best to negotiate rentals and use of facilities in person, together with any roommate(s), if you are planning to search for accommodation after you arrive in Singapore.
