Staying Off Campus

Staying on campus should be much more convenient and affordable than most off-campus accommodation options. However, if you prefer to live off campus, lists compiled by the NUS Office of Student Affairs (list 1, list 2) may provide you with some helpful leads. In addition, there are many non-NUS affiliated websites, such as Agoda, HostelWorld, AirBnB, Craigslist, and, that might be useful to Methods School participants interested in off-campus accommodation.

Please note that the Methods School does not endorse, guarantee, warrant, or recommend any information or necessarily subscribe to any opinions or recommendations provided on these lists or websites.
