Residents' Testimonials

“I chose Taylor’s Hostel Management because it was the obvious choice. It is on campus and close to classes and it is very secure, which was what attracted my parents. The programs here at U Residence weren’t just a good learning experience for me but for everyone else. It’s not just bound to academics, it’s more of a living adventure and it molds you and makes you grow into this person that you were not yesterday.”

“The main reason why I chose U Residence is because it’s so much more convenient to live on campus and it is very secure. My living experience here has been very enjoyable. There are a lot of participative activities conducted for residents. It’s not just a place where you live, eat and bathe but a place where you can socialize and make meaningful engagement with people as well. I gained soft skills such as communication, people management and leadership skills.”

“Firstly it is very convenient staying here. Secondly, through the many events & activities available within U Residence, I have made lots of new friends from different countries like Malaysia, China, Mauritius, Netherlands and many more.

At U Residence the Service Learning Programs have helped us build our Leadership qualities and now it becomes so easy to step up and be part of the team. Because of this, we are actively involved in community engagements and feel proud that we made a difference, not only during events but also impact the children we work with. We have learnt a lot from each other.”

“I enjoyed every bit of this experience at U Residence.

Because of the Service Learning Programs, it’s not just a place to stay with a bed, this program gives you a feeling of fulfillment. It opens your eyes to the hidden potential we all have inside of us. It dares you to face your challenges and overcome obstacles.

I’m sure when I leave U residence in June, I will leave with a bunch of good memories of the experiences I had.

It a whole lot better than leaving thinking "U residence, is it just a place I stayed with a bed? or “Could it have been so much more?”. The choice is yours, if you don’t step up, no one will for you.”

“I think staying at U residence is a good experience to enjoy University life. Great facilities, helpful staff, 24 hours security, nice environment to makes friends, and most importantly you'll stay only 5 minutes from your class!.

Service Learning Programs that give us a chance to STAND OUT. That's why I don't feel homesick when I stay at U Residence.”

  • I have acquired a great deal of experience living independently. It is quite interesting to learn about students coming from different places. Of course, it was quite a challenge to live alone away from family, but the facilities and environment at Taylor’s really make my life easier. The patrolling of security guards is an added value and provides peace of mind.

  • Ruemz is a cosy place and gives a home-like feeling. The room was spacious enough for me to study or enjoy a meal. I also got to use the facilities in U Residence. The Common Kitchen makes up for the lack of a kitchenette in my room. The U Lounge was a convenient area for residents to enjoy with friends or do assignments and group projects.

  • U Residence is a very convenient place. It's easy to get food during the holidays and it's easier with Syopz. The Buddy Programme also helped a lot. I met lots of people with different personalities and nationalities. We shared stories and got to know each other a little better every day.

  • I personally chose U Residence because it is on campus with the chance to make friends with housemates or roommates. If you’re a sporty person, you can jog around the lake. There are stores that open 24/7 so you can have your midnight snack and feel safe with 24-hour security.

  • My stay at Taylor’s has been one of my best experiences in college so far. I haven’t faced any hardships because everyone turned out to be so friendly and generous to me. Living independently in the U Residence hasn’t been that bad because whenever I fall homesick, my friends and roommates are always there to carry out and make me feel like home. I was expecting the school gym and pool to be free of charges but instead they were so pricy. Otherwise being in Taylor’s has been a wonderful experience.

  • I stayed in U Residence for 2 years since November 2018. I found the hostel safe and the management was very friendly. The items given (furniture, miscellaneous equipment) were of good quality. It was quiet and peaceful. During festive seasons, there were movies and it helped us to have time together as students and we were able to meet more residents.
