College Green-Dunearn Road Hostels

With the vision of becoming “A Home Away from Home”, College Green-Dunearn Road Hostels, or just College Green for short, offers opportunities for our tenants to create long lasting friendships with students from all over the world.

Layout of the College Green

The 35,300 sqm estate contains 62 terraced-houses with 248 fully-equipped rooms. A community of students from more than 50 countries is staying in College Green at any one time. Its convenient location, coupled with well-equipped facilities and serene landscape have fostered a conducive living environment for NUS graduate students, especially students from the LKY School.


College Green used to be called Dunearn Road Hostels, which was opened in 1952. These pre-war terrace homes housed University of Malaya and later, University of Singapore students until their closure in 1981. Later, they were leased out by the Singapore Land Authority as rental houses to the public. In 2007, the NUS leased some of the houses from the Singapore Land Authority and converted them into a hostel for our students.

In July 2009, College Green was leased in its entirety by the LKY School to house our students. It was officially opened on the 9th of April 2010 by the former President of Singapore, Mr. S.R. Nathan.


College Green is situated along Dunearn Road, just a 10-minute walk from the Bukit Timah Campus. The Botanic Garden MRT Station located opposite College Green, offers a convenient mode of transport for the residents to travel to the NUS Kent Ridge Campus and other parts of  Singapore. There is also an Internal Shuttle Bus service that transports passengers from College Green to the Bukit Timah Campus and the Kent Ridge Campus.
