SIT’s Punggol campus is set to transform Punggol North into a vibrant learning and economic hub.
Our new campus has been designed to seamlessly integrate with the industry and community as part of the Punggol Digital District. This will enable us to deliver a practical, industry-focused education that will prepare our students for the future.
SIT is leading the way in creating an intelligent and sustainable university experience by harnessing the power of the Internet of Things. Our students have the opportunity to work closely with industry partners in our smart laboratory. These partners can take advantage of our living lab, which provides an open innovation ecosystem for testing and piloting their prototypes in a real-life environment.
SIT's Punggol campus is presently under construction and is slated for completion in 2024. The campus has been designed to be porous, interconnected, and will promote interaction between learning, industry, and the community.
The teams from WOHA Architects and RSP Architects Planners & Engineers are the visionaries behind SIT's centralised campus in Punggol.
The Campus Heart, designed by WOHA as a 'Campus-in-a-Park,' features a forested courtyard surrounded by academic buildings.
The Campus Court, designed by RSP Architects, incorporates green technologies, with two of its buildings certified as Super Low Energy buildings. It faces Coney Island and the Ho Bee Auditorium, and an indoor sports hall will also be located here.
The Campus Heart is a "Campus-in-a-Park" designed by WOHA Architects. The buildings in the Campus Heart are organised as a chain, surrounding a lush forest courtyard that serves as a community park. Here you can find the library, a sheltered event plaza, and the Hatchery building.
The Campus Heart of SIT's Punggol campus, located in the Punggol Digital District, is uniquely endowed with an existing secondary forest. The design capitalises on this green site asset by integrating its learning environments with biophilic indoor-outdoor tropical spaces.
To forge an imageable “Campus-in-a-Park” identity, the academic blocks are organised as a chain of buildings encompassing the central forest courtyard that is transformed into an accessible Community Park. This serves as the heart of SIT, contributing to a strong sense of place that is characterised by memorable nodes for learning, interaction, recreation and rejuvenation.

The Campus Court, designed by RSP, faces Coney Island. The buildings in Campus Court are designed to incorporate green technologies, including natural daylight harvesting and solar panels. The Ho Bee Auditorium, indoor sports hall, and Super Low Energy buildings can all be found here.
The Campus Court was designed with the concept of a courtyard in mind — to create a fluid learning and campus experience. We placed emphasis on creating spaces that promote interaction and participation, through the inclusion of many big and small courtyards, with hard and soft landscapes. These conducive spaces become natural centrifugal forces that bring people together to foster an exchange of ideas and for learning to take place, even outside of the classrooms.

The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) marked a major construction milestone for its new Punggol Campus with a topping-out ceremony on 22 May 2023. The event was graced by Mr. Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Education. The campus, which comprises two main plots, SIT Campus Heart and SIT Campus Court is set to be completed in 2024.
The SIT Punggol Campus has already received several accolades for its sustainable design features, despite still being under construction. Notably, it was awarded the prestigious "ABC Waters Certified (Gold) Award" at the Active Beautiful Clean Waters Seminar 2022 for its adoption of rainwater harvesting for non-potable usage, such as irrigation for horticulture and landscaping.
Additionally, SIT was honored with the BCA Universal Design Mark GoldPLUS (Design) Award, underscoring the institution's commitment to a user-centric approach in the campus's design, operations, and maintenance. This recognition highlights SIT's dedication in creating a sustainable environment that caters to the diverse needs of all individuals.
