The Curtin Singapore campus is located in the central Novena district. Thanks to a good connection to the MRT and bus transport, it is easy to reach for students and offers a fast connection to downtown and the diverse leisure activities in Singapore. Unlike many other colleges in the city, all of the buildings on the Curtin campus are on one site. The lecture halls and seminar rooms as well as the canteen, library and sports facilities are within walking distance and are not scattered across different parts of the city.

The campus, which only opened in 2008, is the second of Curtin University’s three non-Australian locations. Its young age is reflected in the modern structure and the equipment is state-of-the-art. A basketball court and a soccer hall, as well as a barbecue area, fish pond and student lounge invite students to spend time with friends on campus during or after their courses to spend.

The Novena district is named after the well-known Catholic Novena Church, which has stood in the area since 1935. It borders Singapore’s rainforest with its famous TreeTopWalk to the north and Little India to the south.

The university city of Singapore

With a population of four million, Singapore is a city-state on a small island in Southeast Asia. The residents are Chinese, Malays, Indians and a lot of migrant workers and emigrants from all over the world; the local languages ​​are English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil.

There are two land lines to Malaysia and getting around the country is also easy as the public transport system is among the best in the world and taxis are very cheap. Because Singapore was an English colony for a long time, there is left-hand traffic here.

Due to the location close to the í„quator, there are only rare climate changes: the temperatures vary between 23 °C and 34 °C all year round, and it is relatively muggy.

There is an incredible number of sights, from skyscrapers to colonial buildings, churches, temples, museums, theme parks, nature, zoos to shopping centers and beaches. Singapore is also home to Equinox, Asia’s tallest restaurant, on the 70th floor of Swissôtel The Stamford. Despite their name, coffee shops are more like pubs, because you can get coffee as well as a beer or other drink in the evening.

Nightlife takes place mainly in the city center, especially on Mohammed Sultan Road and on the Singapore River.
