  • Take Bus Service No. 183 at Clementi Station.
  • Alight at the Pasir Panjang Road, near Heng Mui Keng Terrace.
  • Take a 5-minute walk by Heng Mui Keng Terrace and turn left at Kent Ridge Drive where the Library is located behind the Mochtar Riady Building.
  • You may also take any one of  bus services 10, 30, 51, 143, 188 or 200 on the opposite side of Haw Par Villa station (CC25) and alight at the bus stop on Pasir Panjang Road, opposite Heng Mui Keng Terrace.

Alternatively, you may also

take Bus Service No. 96 from Clementi bus interchange or No. 95 from the bus stop opposite Buona Vista MRT station.  For bus 96, alight at the bus-stop opposite the Central Library. For bus 95, alight at the bus-stop in front of Central Library.

Then, take an internal shuttle bus (Service A) from the bus-stop outside Central Library.  After the internal shuttle bus passes the Mochtar Riady Building and turns the corner, you will see Hon Sui Sen Memorial Library. Press the bell and you will alight at the bus stop on side of the NUS Business School’s block Biz 2.

Please note that there are covered walkways linking the Central Library and Hon Sui Sen Memorial Library. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Central Library to the Hon Sui Sen Memorial Library.

See: NUS Parking  

By Bicycle 

There are no really safe bicycle lanes to NUS Kent Ridge Campus. For now, the only way is to use Clementi Road flyover and enter campus via Entrance A.

There are two other marginally safer ways to get on the Kent Ridge campus:

  • From Pasir Panjang Road, enter Heng Mui Keng Terrace, which leads to Kent Ridge Drive.
    Enter Science Park I from Portsdown Ave (near Normanton Park).
  • Exit at South Buona Vista Road, just outside the NUHS building. Note that this can be a busy junction during morning and evening peak hours.

When the new University Town is ready, there may be a safer ride from Dover Road/Commonwealth Ave via Campus Link.
