Tembusu College’s motto The Home of Possibilities, means we value the development of each individual according to her or his own path through life. At the same time we are a learning community, which seeks to give students an intense experience in a nurturing environment. The college administers (and awards certificates for) the prestigious University Town College Programme (UTCP), which augments students’ regular degree programmes by emphasising breadth, critical thinking, and exposure to inter-disciplinary thinking. Our curriculum includes both seminars and out-of-classroom learning experiences.
The college is not themed. Diversity is an important part of our ethos, and we offer learning opportunities across a broad spectrum of interests. We do, however, have particular areas of strength, which are reflected in the backgrounds of our faculty.
A home away from home, the Tembusu College community is 21 storeys of collegiate spirit known for its friendly and welcoming culture.
Wake up or wind down through casual conversations with your Fellows and peers over meals at the Dining Hall. Sweat it out over sports at the Multi Purpose Hall. Huddle with like-minded individuals at one of the many Student-run Interest Groups & Student-Initiated Projects or start your own. Let loose or let your creativity flow in the well furnished Student Spaces. Be our Student Partners and contribute to the College community.
Need career advice? Stressed? Need help on personal issues? Or simply want catch up with friendly members of our Residential Team? We're here for you.
Tembusu College is much more than a home; it's a Home of Possibilities.
Mr Lee Yun Ze

Tembusu College, National University of Singapore
Yun Ze is a fourth-year undergraduate reading Law. He enjoys thinking about societal issues and how we can have better conversations with people unlike ourselves. He can often be found in the dining hall reading the newspaper while sipping on a cup of hot milo.
Yun Ze had the time of his life during his first and second undergraduate years as a resident in Shan house, and went on to make many lasting friendships and connections. He was part of Tembusu's interest groups in tBladers (inline skating), tSplash (swimming), and Yarn & Doodles (art and craft). Yet his best memories are of impromptu conversations struck up in the lift, lounges, and lobby of the College.
Yun Ze enjoys cycling and swimming - he is supposed to complete his first triathlon before graduation, but is not on track to doing so. In his free time he likes playing the guitar (badly), doing magic tricks (badly), and reading the newspaper (badly). Yun Ze has too many books that he knows about, but has never read. He is a big proponent of getting it done tomorrow.
