Established in 2009, SIT currently has six distributed campuses, with its main campus situated in Dover.
With the growing student population, we will consolidate existing campuses into a single campus in Punggol, located in the north-east of Singapore. Our new campus will provide students with new collaborative learning spaces, high-tech labs and flexible spaces for learning to happen outside the classroom.
Students can look forward to working alongside our industry partners in the business park, located next to the university.
Specially designed to integrate with industry and community, our new campus will strengthen our ability to deliver an industry-focused, applied learning education for our students.
The move to Punggol is on track for the second half of 2024. The specific move date hinges on the progress of construction work, and we anticipate announcing the confirmed date by early 2024. Stay tuned for more updates as we gear up for this significant transition!
As part of our 'Campus-in-the-park' vision aligning with Punggol Digital District's eco-commuting policy, we're moving towards a car-lite district with fewer parking lots and limited season parking. To support eco-friendly commuting, we strongly encourage students and staff to opt for public transportation.
Here's what you can expect in terms of transportation options:
This shift embodies our commitment to sustainable and accessible commuting options for everyone at our vibrant new location!
Given its connectivity and proximity to the Punggol Coast MRT station and bus interchange, there won't be any chartered bus services provided to the Punggol Campus. The public transportation options nearby aim to facilitate easy access for all students and staff commuting to the campus.
SIT's existing campuses will gradually be returned to the respective authorities when they're no longer needed. The new centralised campus in Punggol will host all programmes except those offered by The Culinary Institute of America (CIA). CIA will continue to operate from its current location at Temasek Polytechnic.
The design of the Punggol Campus aims to foster integration among those sited within the Punggol Digital District and the wider Punggol community. As part of this vision, floors from the Campus Boulevard (Level 2) and below will be accessible to members of the public. This accessibility promotes engagement and collaboration between SIT and the broader community, enhancing the overall exchange of ideas and opportunities.
SIT students and staff will have priority access to the facilities and amenities in our Punggol campus. Requests by external parties will be managed on a case-by-case basis.
The journey towards creating our campus at Punggol was a collaborative effort from the get-go. From 2016 to 2019, we conducted numerous visioning workshops, ideation sessions, brainstorming sessions, and interviews with over 500 student and staff representatives. This inclusive approach helped shape the SIT campus concept plan and design requirements.
The final design underwent meticulous review and revision, a process that involved the invaluable feedback and input from key stakeholders of the University. This thorough and inclusive process ensured that the approved design truly reflects the collective vision and needs of our SIT community.
There are several spaces dedicated just for students. These areas are specially designed to support your study sessions and project work. From cozy study nooks to collaborative project zones, we've got you covered.
The available sporting facilities include:
There will be a diverse range of F&B, retail and lifestyle options on both sides of the Campus Boulevard at the Punggol Campus.
