Scheduled Power Disruption

Regrettably, the University Town complex has a scheduled power outage for 16 December between 7AM to 3PM. This affects both the residential rooms, the elevators/lifts, and the U-Town food services. For those of you in the university dormitories, we suggest that you vacate your rooms early on the 16th seeing as air conditioning, hot water, wifi, and elevator services will cease to function after 7AM. Be sure to make plans regarding the charging of your electronics knowing this planned outage. Breakfast will not be available in U-Town because of the power outage, but The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at the University Hospital serves breakfast. We suggest taking Bus 95 to The Coffee Bean at Kent Ridge MRT, and then walk from there to L27 after breakfast. A light breakfast is also offered at the conference one hour before the official start of each day’s events.

Public transportation is fairly good, so it is possible to stay at more distant hotels so long as you can connect to the orange Circle Line, which brings you to Kent Ridge MRT station. Example hotels near MRT stations for a subway commute:
