Halls of Residence
The Residence consists of two 11-storey blocks of building providing accommodation for 400 boarders and one 10-storey block with 40 apartments for staff and their families.
Each level of the boarder blocks has two clusters housing a total of 19 boarders in air-conditioned rooms. A full-time Resident Mentor is assigned to care for and look after the well-being of the 19 boarders.
Common facilities within each cluster include:
- Lift access on every level
- Air-conditioned common living area with a television
- Shower and rest rooms
The school allocates bed and room for the boarder. We see it as beneficial for boarders to room and interact with boarders who come from different countries and backgrounds and have diverse interests.
Each boarder is given a personal bed-cum-study desk furniture set, chair, bookshelf, wardrobe and cabinet, bed sheet, pillow and pillow case, blanket, and an electrical extension cord.
Once a room is assigned to a boarder, the boarder is expected to upkeep and maintain his/her accommodation, and take responsibility for any broken or damaged furniture or equipment in the room.
The school reserves the right to change boarders’ room. Boarders are not allowed to choose and change rooms of their own accord.
Common facilities available for boarders’ use are:
- Dining hall
- Activity hall for sports and games
- A study terrace
- Wifi-wireless access facilities
Boarders can also make use of the study, sports and recreational facilities of Hwa Chong International School. These include classrooms, library, computer room, running track, street soccer, tennis, basketball, volley-ball and badminton courts.
