Living in Singapore

Like any other country, you will need to decide forts that whether you want to live in university-managed accommodation, or with a private landlord. If you want to have a catered or self-catered option, you should choose the university-managed accommodation. You can easily manage the meal costs if you choose the catered accommodation.

With the help of the accommodation office at your university, you will be able to know what accommodation is available for you suiting your all needs. The accommodation office should be able to provide you with a list of private properties and landlords in the area in case you are thinking of renting from a private landlord or if your chosen university can’t offer you anything in its own residential facility.

Make sure that you know your contractual rights and responsibilities wherever you choose to live. You may need to fill tenancy agreement and you should read that thoroughly before you sign.

Talking about the cost of living, it depends heavily on what part of Singapore will you be living. How much you like socializing also affects that.
