Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? Because off campus we were free to organize our days without any sort of constraints and to manage our social lives in the most indipendent way. Furthermore.. so nice to share a flat, cook, have parties in your own place together with friends from all over the world..
Personal comments:
We were living at the 15th floor of a sky scraper 20 min far from the campus but we were pretty close to the City so that we didn't miss the facilities of the Campus.

Why? I chose the apartment over the residence becuase residences have curfew. The only perk is that there are many students living near you.
Personal comments:
i will go in 2 weeks.. i can comment then. I have seen many pictures and my roomate saw the place. I trust he is judgement - he is from my faculty.

Why? If I would go again to Singapore, I would not be a student at the National University of Singapore and therefore I would not be eligible for the students' residence I stayed at last year.
Personal comments:
Very convenient because of efficient shuttle bus service. Good place to meet many other exchange students.

Why? My housing at Prince George's Park was very good, but the other campus areas were at time less quality. But mine was top-notch.
Personal comments:
Excellent if you live in type-A residences, with their airconditioning, own toilets/shower and privacy. They even clean your toilet once a week!

If you are unlucky and do not have ensuite and aircon it is pretty bad. I was lucky. Its a good place to make friends and cheap.

Why? It is right beside the university and here you will be able to meet many other exchange students who in the student dorms
Personal comments:
It is very difficult to get housing on campus mainly because NUS cannot accommodate all the exchange students, which is why many had to find housing in other places. If you can get housing on campus then you are in luck, however they are definitely not as comfortable as renting an apartment.
