NUS law school to move back to Kent Ridge campus in 2025

SINGAPORE: The National University of Singapore’s ( NUS) law school will return to the Kent Ridge campus for the new academic year starting August 2025.

The NUS Faculty of Law ( NUS Law ), which is currently located at the university’s campus in Bukit Timah, will move into the Yale- NUS College premises, located in University Town.

This will occur after the final batch of Yale-NUS College students turn in May 2025, according to a news release from NUS on Monday ( May 27 ).

This is a major step by the University to further connect its peculiar law degree programs into its extensive and inter-disciplinary undergraduate education, imbue the teaching and learning of law more fully into its wider range of interdisciplinary educational offerings, and bring law students closer to the main campus, according to NUS.

NUS Law now comprises about 1, 000 students, 250 graduate students and 160 full- day faculty and staff.

When NUS’s previous institution, the then University of Malaya, accepted its first batch of law students in 1957, they set off on their studies at the Bukit Timah campus.

The faculty moved to the Kent Ridge campus, where it remained for the next 25 years, one year after NUS was established in 1980.

The faculty then relocated to Bukit Timah in 2006, when the site was rerouted to NUS.

We are thrilled to welcome the NUS Law community back to Kent Ridge, said NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye.

” I’m looking forward to having the NUS Law family back on the main campus where they spent 25 years from 1981 to 2006,” he continued.
