Guided Tours:

You are highly encouraged to visit us at Tembusu College between 9:00AM to 6:00PM and join us on our college tour, brought to you by our very own college students! During the tour, you will be able to find out more about college life and the various interest groups from the students themselves, and check out our living areas (and hopefully, soon to be yours!), Learn Lobe and Dining Hall. Over at the Learn Lobe, you will get a chance to visit our themed rooms (Reading Room, The Abbey, The Atlas and the Games Room). Say hello to our Fellows and ask them a question or two if you are curious about our UTCP modules. So come on down to Tembusu College to find out more about us this Open Day!

Before that…

Armed with a go-pro, our Tembusu Ambassadors snuck around, documenting our facilities and a small number of interest groups, to present to you what goes on in Tembusu College! What is it like in this Home of Possibilities? Take a peek here right now!

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
