3 Residential Colleges

Residential college life is a central part of the Yale-NUS experience. Building community, creating college traditions , and engaging in late-night conversations is at the heart of student life. In our close-knit community, students are assigned into one of three colleges (Saga, Elm, and Cendana). Each college has its own quirks, traditions, and history to boast. If you are interested in building a college culture from the ground-up, and do so with peers from all over the world, explore Yale-NUS residential college life.
