Yunnan Garden Campus
NTU Administration Building
NTU's primary campus is the 200-hectare (2.0 sq km; 0.772 sq mi) Yunnan Garden Campus which is situated adjacent to the Jurong West district of Singapore. It is the largest university campus on the island of Singapore and also houses Singapore's largest on-campus residence infrastructure including 18 halls of residence for undergraduates and two graduate halls.
The campus grounds were originally donated by the Singapore Hokkien Association to Nanyang University, a Chinese-medium university inaugurated in 1953. In 1980, theGovernment of Singapore merged Nanyang University with the University of Singapore to form the present-day National University of Singapore. The following year, the Nanyang University grounds were granted to the Nanyang Technological Institute, a newly formed English-medium engineering college. In 1991, NTI merged with theNational Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore's main teaching college, to form the present-day Nanyang Technological University.
Chinese Heritage Centre, formerly the administrative building of Nanyang University
The former Nanyang University administration building was beautifully restored into the Chinese Heritage Centre and was gazetted as a national monument in 1998 - now overlooking the historical Yunnan Garden. The Nanyang University Memorial and original Nanyang University Arch were also declared national monuments of Singapore in 1998. The NTU Art & Heritage Museum is an approved public museum under the National Heritage Board’s Approved Museum Scheme; benefactors who donate artworks and artefacts to NTU enjoy double tax deductions.
In 2008, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, one of the world’s largest foundations for entrepreneurship, selected NTU as the first Kauffman campus outside of the US.
The campus also served as the Youth Olympic Village for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010.
Singapore's first eco-business park, CleanTech Park, is situated next to NTU's main campus. It is proposed to be developed in three phases with a estimated completion year of 2030. The park's first multi-tenanted building, CleanTech One, was opened in October 2010. CleanTech One's tenants include those from the public sector (the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI), the Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N), and the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore), as well as from the private sector (DHI Water & Environment, Toray Industries, Silecs International, CIMA Nanotech, Diamond Energy, the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), Yingli Solar, and Pfizer).
Apart from the Yunnan campus, NTU also operates a satellite campus at the one-north business park. It comprises two wings with respective educational and alumni clubhouse facilities primarily allowing the university to enhance its delivery of continuing education programmes as well as for external collaborations.
The educational facilities include a 215-seat auditorium, a 80-seat lecture theatre, 6 nos of 45-seat lecture theatres, 21 nos of 18 to 50-seat seminar rooms, 3 nos of 18 to 27-seat computer rooms and 8 nos of 6-seat discussion rooms. Alumni clubhouse facilities include a fun pool, a Chinese restaurant, games arcade, wine bar, lounge, karaoke rooms, games rooms, gymnasium, childcare centre and SPA. The Campus is also home to NTU's Centre for Continuing Education and the Confucius Institute of NTU.
A third campus, Novena Campus, is situated close to LKCMedicine’s partner teaching hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital in downtown Novena. The new 20-storey Clinical Sciences Building is expected to be completed in 2016, and is expected to facilitate the LKCmedicine students’ seamless integration into clinical settings by providing state-of-the-art future classrooms, including a learning studio, alcove clusters, clinical skills and communication centre, which boasts its own four-bed mock ward as well as several consultation rooms, so that students can practise their skills in a realistic and safe environment. The CSB will also be home to LKCMedicine researchers, with the laboratories interconnected through collaborative spaces.
