Student's opinion

"I have enjoyed my stay in this student dormitory! The carefully-designed living space as well as the well-equipped facilities in the common area which includes study rooms and fitness room had provided me a very conducive environment, both for studying and relaxing. On top of that, I highly praised the friendly and efficient administrative staffs, receptionists and others who make everything so convenient for the residents. This has been the place which I call home for the past three consecutive years and I highly recommend it to the newcomers who seek for a place with great comfort and a community-feeling." -Hong Huat
