Abstract: This dissertation presents a study of thermal comfort in a naturally ventilated dining area of a Hall of Residence in NUS during the wet and dry season. The objective is to investigate if there are any difference in neutral temperature of students have a different temperature which they feel comfortable in the wet and dry season in Singapore. Onsite survey and measurement were conducted in the dining area in King Edward 7 Hall of Residences in NUS. Analysis was performed on the survey results and measurements and regression was performed to predict the temperature the temperature that occupants will feel comfortable in. A further analysis was done by correlating between the thermal factors and thermal sensation. Qualitative analysis was also done to identify the resultant effect of high temperature in which occupants did not prefer. Occupants prefer a cooler place despite feeling comfortable in the rainy season with some responding that the environment was slightly too cool for comfort. Conversely, in the warm season, they still preferred the place to be cooler despite feeling comfortable. The explanation is that people would like to have control over their comfortability despite having adapted to the hot and humid tropical climate in Singapore.
