Alcohol Policy

Yale-NUS’s current alcohol policy:

“The College expects that students observe healthy, safe, and socially responsible behaviour if students choose to consume alcohol. The legal drinking age in Singapore is 18 years of age. However, alcohol may not be sold or consumed on campus unless otherwise approved, such as in approved food outlets on campus or during approved events and programs. Those seeking to host an event with alcohol present must contact the Dean of Students office to apply for event approval and learn more about the required guidelines and procedures for such events. Additionally, any event with alcohol present within a Residential College must be approved by that Residential College’s Rector. In compliance with Singapore Law, Yale-NUS College prohibits the sale or consumption of alcohol to individuals below 18 years of age and takes the matter of underage drinking seriously.”

How satisfied are you with Yale-NUS's alcohol policy?

  • It's too strict
  • It's too lenient

Guest Policy

Yale-NUS’s current guest policy states that:

“Common sense and common courtesy apply when having guests visit the campus or student residences, whether the guests are Yale-NUS students or not. Students may have guests for brief visits, including one overnight guest per room, but for no longer than a few days. Students may not have guests stay on a regular basis, i.e., every weekend. Hosts are responsible for their guest(s) and should accompany them at all times. Hosts may be held responsible for violations of the guest policy as well as any guest who violates residential or college regulations. Whenever a student has a concern about the presence of a guest in the suite, they should approach the host whom the guest is visiting to express their concerns and to seek to resolve the issues. Such matters can further be addressed by Residential Life staff, including Dean’s Fellows, Vice Rectors, and Rectors.”

How satisfied are you with Yale-NUS's guest policy?
  • I am satisfied
  • It's too strict
  • It's too lenient

    With regard to the sharing of Yale-NUS facilities with NUS visitors, could we include an option to vote for something along the lines of “Only if accompanied/invited by a Yale-NUS student”? “Sometimes” is too vague.

    There should also be a delineation between NUS Utown (public) spaces and NUS private spaces as these are different. NUS spaces like the swimming pool, PC/Mac Commons are non-faculty specific and are part of the greater university landscape that is reasonable in terms of access to Yale-NUS Students.

    Perhaps there could be an option where Yale-NUS students must first attempt to book spaces/ rooms at Yale-NUS before they are allowed to compete with the wider NUS community for NUS book-able spaces.
    The same goes for gym/ sports facilities, Yale-NUS students should be expected to use Yale-NUS spaces unless they are full/ booked at which point they can try for a place / booking at NUS.
