The other covers the recreational facilities on-campus and the practical aspects of living in our unique hostel and your future ‘home’.
Campus tours take place all day long and it starts at the Info & Tours booth located at the Campus Centre, Level 1. Chat with our friendly students/staff/faculty and learn about the overseas learning opportunities at the booths and project showcase.
2. DIY activities from Fab Lab
At the Fabrication Lab (Fab Lab), SUTD students design and build virtually anything with high-performance industrial machines. Curious to try your hand at making something? At the Open House, you will have the chance to! The Fab Lab is open all day at Building 5, Level 1.
