Abstract: In Singapore, local universities have taken it upon themselves to provide campus living as it is not seen as just a roof above students’ head but it is about building a community, bringing together like-minded individuals of varied background and culture in the hopes of making things happen. Not all universities offer campus living to their students and for those universities that provide students the option for campus living, each university is offering a different campus living from each other. With prospective students using campus living as a criterion when applying for universities, these higher institutions are realizing the importance of providing students the option to stay on-campus. Hence, building accommodation to provide students campus living would be in the pipelines of these higher institutions. Consequently, this dissertation aims to establish students’ motivation for staying on-campus, factor affecting students’ choice of accommodation and their satisfaction level of the accommodation they reside or have resided in. Through the administering of a questionnaire, respondents of 3 autonomous universities – National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technology University and Singapore University and Technology and Design were asked to rate how they felt based on questions asked pertaining to the objective of this dissertation using a 5 point Likert scale. Overall, it was concluded that convenience is the main motivation for students choosing to stay on-campus followed closely by students believing that only having stayed on-campus would they have had a holistic university experience. It was further found that students studying in NUS are the most satisfied with their campus living. Finally, residents are satisfied with their accommodation and have displayed loyalty to their choice of accommodation and would recommend it to their friends.
