Student Life

Variety is the spice of life in the Singapore Institute of Technology, the institution counts with multiple sport courts for all sorts of occasion, a fully equipped gym and dance studio, for less intensive training there’s a zone dedicated to cue sports, and a fully furnished student lounge.

Clubs aren’t any less varied, aside from all the sports focused ones , students can participate in artistic ones that range from photography to theatre, and even more unique specialty clubs like foodie, computer coding or even scuba clubs.

The Singapore Institute of Technology provides and environment where no interest is too niche and no club isn’t possible to develop, there’s definitely something for everybody in it.
