For travel from both hotels and hostels please note the following map and instructions:
Most of the hostels are either near to Little India area (Northeast Line, NE7 Little India)or Bugis area (East West Line, EW12 Bugis). For those hostels that are near to Little India, you will have to walk to the Little India Station and take public bus from the exit A bus stop to our campus. The bus service number to take will be 48, 67 or 171 and you will alight at the 10th bus stop which is located just beyond the university’s main entrance (look out for huge orange & blue standing sign).
For those who stay along the Bugis area, you will have to train to Newton, then change from EW line at City Hall to NS line Newton. Once you reach Newton MRT Station, go to Exit A Bus Stop to take public bus no 66, 67, 170 and 171 and alight at the 6th bus stop which is located just beyond the university’s main entrance (look out for huge orange & blue standing sign).
There will be a pick up for those staying at the recommended hotels. The following information elates to your return journey to those hotels. The hotels on the website are in Havelock Road, except for the hangout @ Mt. Emily. The nearest MRT station would be Clarke Quay (NE Line), but you will then have to figure out on how to walk from the Clarke Quay station to the 3 hotels (Park Hotel, Gallery Hotel and Studio M).
