Just to sidetrack a bit, which Hall is better???

Depends "better" in what sense. Sports, arts and culture, music? Food? Proximity w.r.t the faculty you're in? Culture of the hall?
A brief overview: Temasek and Eusoff are better in sports, Kent Ridge and Sheares are better at the arts and culture stuff, and for their rag&flag. KR is also good in music. I haven't heard much about KE7 or Raffles, so I guess the activities there are much more toned down as compared to the rest. KE7 is much dominated by medical school and FOS students because of its proximity. KR and Sheares are nearer to biz school, not so sure about temasek and eusoff.

So which hall is better really depends on which one suits your interests better/ what you are looking for.

I mean the residence is not fixed throughout, you will have to change residence every 2 semesters right. By then you can try again. That's what I meant, usually, they will send out emails.

Hi! I was assigned to PGP too...sigh. Anyone know how we can get involved in team sports like volleyball since PGP doesn't have these kind of activities? Like drama, etc.

I'm nervous about being isolated at PGP and also racking up enough points to stay on or move to a hall later on :(

lavender
06-18-2009, 11:21 PM
You can sign up for activities at the CCA booths during the matriculation fair, when you matriculate. They'll contact you when selections are around the corner or when there are activities OR when the annual general meeting is near, so that you can run for a executive committee position.

For sports, there is likely a selection for IVPs, that I'm not exactly that sure, since after all, you will be playing for NUS. Then arts and culture, it depends. some got selections, some don't. There are also NUSSU CCAs that will give you more RHAPS points. Yup. If you have friends in hall, and you're good in a sport or just want to try out, you can always "piggyback" and got and participate. We do have quite a number PGP residents coming over to KE7 for activities.

There is no need to worry that much as of now. What you can do, is to see around and think about at what you want to take part in. :)

Maybe leh! I logged on to the Hostel Management Website on 16 Jun 09, it stated that I have been offered PGP. But when I logged on last week, the status reverted to "Application under review".

(Anyway, I accepted the offer on 16 Jun 09. Wonder if I should keep checking the website and may need to re-accept again? :confused:)

I went for medical check-up at University Health Centre on 25 Jun 09. I overheard an admin staff and doctor talking about the H1N1 case/s at PGP.

Hmmm~:eek:

The hostel application results are out for local students! I am offered accomodation in my first choice, King Edward VII Hall. :D

I also got King edward hall.. just wondering.. how are we supposed to make payment? Is payment by a semester basis? Secondly, can we live for 1 semester and if we decide to withdraw before the begin of semester 2, can?

tadaki
06-29-2009, 11:10 AM
Hmm. Ok i've checked again and now they've changed my status to accepted, PGP, same as before (it was my first choice anyway XD) But i still have no confirmation email O.o

clarenceux
06-29-2009, 12:31 PM
okay so i guess whoever got their results before 29 June 2009 (local applicants) received their respective halls again?

e.g.

offered choice -> under review -> offered the same choice again?

I got back Kent Ridge Hall, and it shows I have already accepted it (before 29 June 2009).

with regards to admin stuff I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH YOU. i'm still waiting for news on scholarship stuff from a month or so ago. but i guess they're pretty busy dealing with thousands of various apps.

Hi there hall mate! Erm, I also not sure regarding payment but I reckon they will inform us one way or another (people are very fast when it comes to asking for money :p), so I just accepted the offer first than never really think about these issues. As for withdrawal after one semester of stay, I remember reading somewhere that it is possible. But don't just take my word for it... :)

I also got King edward hall.. just wondering.. how are we supposed to make payment? Is payment by a semester basis? Secondly, can we live for 1 semester and if we decide to withdraw before the begin of semester 2, can?

You'll make a downpayment (approx. $500) when you check into hall for the first time. Afterwhich, they'll deduct the rest of the fees from your GIRO. Payment is a per semester basis. You can withdraw after the first semester if you don't want to stay anymore. No penalties. But of you withdraw half way through the semester, then you'll have to forfeit the fees you paid.

It's very heartbreaking that after attending the hall camp, submitting application early, and listing all ur CCA records and then... To hear 2/3 of my OG mates enter while I didn't. That's what happened to me.

I'm feeling quite disappointed about this... but will try next year till I get in... anyone who entered in that way?

Did you accept your offer? More importantly, did you print out that you have accepted the offer?

I accepted my offer and yeah, the My Application section is gone. Or rather, inaccessible.

There shouldn't be anything on the statement section. I never saw anything there before.

But if you did not accept your offer in time, I'm sorry to say that your place has gone to someone else.

Is it true that KE7 got alot of international students coming from China? I.E to say more China students than other halls?

Also, i got into ke7. I understand the orientation is from 24 to 27 july as it saw it from their website. But right now, I have no news from them saying when is the hall welcome camp. If thats the case, how am i supposed to sign up for that camp ?

Also, can we just checked in on 3 August?

Hey guys, after getting a hall placement, next thing to do is...well.. to shift in on 29 Jul right? I have totally no clue when do i do this and how lol. Hall Orientations are prior to shifting in or after? *lost*.

Hall orientations occur the week before week 0. Essentially, you'd have shifted in to participate in the orientation. There's a few ways to go about doing it. Firstly, you can pack whatever that is needed for the orientation and stay in hall through that period. OR, alternatively, you can shift in all the possessions you want in hall and just take the week to settle down at the same time.

Is it true that KE7 got alot of international students coming from China? I.E to say more China students than other halls?

Like I mentioned in the KE7 thread, each hall has it's share of Chinese nationals. It depends on what you define as a lot more. Traditionally, school of computing was very near KE7, so many chose to dwell in KE7. However, with the shift of SoC to the area beside school of business, new intakes have chosen to take up accommodation in other halls as well. But ultimately, all halls have a pretty big ratio of international students.

Also, i got into ke7. I understand the orientation is from 24 to 27 july as it saw it from their website. But right now, I have no news from them saying when is the hall welcome camp. If thats the case, how am i supposed to sign up for that camp ?

Also, can we just checked in on 3 August?

Welcoming week is from 20th till 23th July, it is more gravitated towards helping international students make a smoother transition into Singapore and the school environment. I bet you know how to get to Ikea and sheng shiong and how the public system work. But if you'd like someone to lead you around, it'd be nice to join too. Hall camp is hall orientation, they're the same thing. Your KEWOC buddy will contact you soon. If you still have doubts, you can always look at the official website for updates. The link can be found in KE7's thread.

Yes, you may just check in on 3rd of august if you dont want to attend orientation.

are we waiting for any letter from NUS regarding our hall stuff?

I don't remember receiving any letters regarding confirmation of hall stay. It's all online application. You'll be "confirmed" once you check in and foot the down-payment. If you miss the deadline, then your place will just go to the next person on the wait-list. ;)

@lavender

I want to go for the camp between 24 to 27, but is it okay if i go for the camp on 25th morning or 24th late evening as I have an undergraduate talk on 24th morning to afternoon itself.

Also can i just check in on 3 august ? but I want to attend the orientation also

lavender
07-13-2009, 09:20 PM
Yes you can join the camp at a different timing, the committee can make exceptions for you regarding this. Please do inform you buddy once he/she contacts you via email.

As for the checking in, you'd have to check in on the day you join the camp, it both for accommodation and administration purposes. During the camp, we would let you stay in your own hall room, since there is no other place in hall for you to sleep, hence you cant check in at a later date if you want to join the orientation.

If you intend to join on 24th evening, please do take note that the office closes at 6pm, so do make it in time to check in, or else you would have no place to sleep on that day.

Q1) We only need to e-mail the Letter of Understanding and snail mail the Payment Form + Cheque/Bank Draft/Money Order, right?

Q2) Do we need to snail mail the Letter of Understanding back to Kent Ridge Hall?

Q3) Are there any other forms that I am missing out?

Hey everyone, I'm a female freshman who's been allocated a Type B room at PGP, and I'm looking to swap for Type A. I know there's someone who's looking to swap Type A for B/C, but only people of the same gender can swap rooms.

Anyone who is interested or knows anyone who has a Type A room and wants to swap down, please PM me. Thanks!

(Sorry for the multiple posts in different threads, hoping this gets seen by as many people as possible!)
