There are number of student hostels in Singapore that offer to student’s accommodation at modest rates. Depending on the requirements of students, some of these hostels may offer laundry, meal, and other optional service. For more information on student hostels in Singapore please click on the Student Accommodation Handbook prepared by Singapore Tourist Boards below.
Typically hostels charge $350 to $550 on twin-sharing. This will depend on whether they require laundry service and meal (lunch, or dinner or both). Of course, the wider the range of services provided, the greater the charge. The rates may be 15-20% cheaper if more students share the room e.g. 3 or 4 to a room. If they are used to dormitory living (sometimes up to 10 students per large room), which will be cheaper. But this may be at the expense of individual comfort since some may not be accustomed to having too many students around while they are studying. All these factors would have to be considered by the student in deciding his/her accommodation option.
For other option, students could generally rent a Housing & Development Board (HDB) accommodation between S$600 – S$800 on twin sharing per room depending on locality, size, transport convenience and proximity to food centres and other amenities. For private apartments and condominiums, this could rise to S$1,000 and above with meals and laundry services charged separately.
Most accommodation is let out to students on 3-month; 6 month and 12 months’
lease agreement. More often, the landlord will demand an advance payment or
deposit to cover for 3 months or more. There are also some landlords who are willing to let out rooms for rent at monthly advance payment.
