Hate dragging yourself out of bed at 8 every morning? Us too. There’s nothing worse than starting your day off with a dull, droning lecturer.
But these 5 schools make studying a little more… Fun. Just a little. But still – it’s better than nothing.
1. School of Art, Design and Media (NTU)
This place is as creative as the people studying in it.
With a structure similar to the Marina Barrage, a long, winding staircase lines the dome-shaped building. Once you reach the top, you’ll be greeted with a view of NTU in all its glory.
If you know how foresty the university is, you’d know you won’t be disappointed.
Oh, and there’s a grey wall right outside the entrance where ADM-ers usually take their #OOTDs.
2. The Hive (NTU)
The Hive needs no introduction. Located next to the South Spine (one of the busiest places on campus), the eight-storey building has no shortage of attention.
NTU students have affectionately dubbed it the “Xiao Long Bao” building, with each circular-shaped classroom resembling a “long” (“basket” in Mandarin) of dim sums.
Their Co-Op Café is definitely one of the best spots in NTU to grab a drink and chill with friends. And if you happen to drop by, a must-try is their Carbonara Pasta ($5.50). Trust me.
3. Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (NUS)
Yong Siew Toh students get to study music in a place as beautiful as this. Truly livin’ the life.
With high ceilings and looming walls, the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music is definitely a stunner. The moment you step through those doors, you’re awash with a sense of serenity and tranquility.
If scouring the place for an Instagram backdrop is your thing, this is the spot you’ll want to look for. But if it were me – I’d rather spend my time basking in the quiet.
4. Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (NUS)
Many FASS kids love what they’re doing – and it’s not surprising with a school like this. The FASS building exudes an old-school rustic vibe we rarely get to see anymore.
And here’s the go-to spot for any Instagram photos. After all, what’s more 70s than a brick wall?
5. Auditorium, Building 2 (SUTD)
With spiral stairs and snaking corridors, SUTD’s auditorium is a thing of beauty. Its minimalist white walls are not only a great place to get Instagram-worthy shots, it’s also pleasing to the eye. Calming for the soul. Tranquil for the mind.
