Nanyang Technological University Campus : Singapore

Last time I visited Singapore was in 2014, so a visit was long overdue. I got an invite to come over and spend some time with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) at the very far west side of Singapore, away from the Singaporean hustle bustle center, though nothing in Singapore is ever very far. I spend the first weekend in the center exploring all that Singapore had to offer and then moved to stay at the NTU Executive Center on campus, and almost every day had some time to go around and explore before after work sessions.

It’s a very green campus, with some funky architecture. You can tell the Singaporeans really put a lot of money into things, though it’s now this weird mix combo somewhere in between two styles, one seems a bit old and run down, and the other looks like it’s trying too hard to be high-tech. Regardless of that, the green, and the flowers everywhere, are what really makes the campus. Academics wise, there’s no doubt this young university is doing extremely well, climbing up the world rankings, and considered one of the best in Asia.

In 33-35c, walking is guaranteed to get you sweating, and so at some point one reverts to the local bus system, with circular route buses coming in every 2-5 minutes.

 

To share a bit of the green campus atmosphere, here is a photo walk summary of the Singaporean Nanyang Technological University campus.
