Campus Entry and Exit

Please note the following for those students seeking entry into campus:

  • Only authorised students are allowed to enter campus.

  • If you or a household member (18 yrs old and above) are feeling unwell with flu-like symptoms (such as fever, cough, sore throat or runny nose), do not come to campus. Please see a doctor or encourage your household member to see a doctor and obtain an MC with confirmation of the flu-like symptoms. If you are required to come to campus, please apply for Leave of Absence (LOA application).

  • Take your temperature before leaving your home to come to campus, and then report it via STRES. You are required to bring your thermometer to campus to take your temperature a second time later in the day, and also report that via STRES.

  • Entry into the campus will only be through the following entry points, with all other entrances closed.  
    • Gate 1 (along Dover Road)
    • Pedestrian turnstiles at Dover MRT Station
    • All other gates with turnstiles will operate as exit points only.
  • Students coming via vehicles will have to be dropped off either at the Dover MRT Station driveway or Gate 1 drop-off area. They are not allowed to be dropped off inside campus. For those with special needs that require drop-off inside campus, they will have to inform Security when they arrive at Gate 1 and they will be directed accordingly. Note that the driver will need to go through temperature screening, do SafeEntry Check In and submit the visitor declaration form before being allowed to proceed into campus for the drop off.

  • You must do the SafeEntry Check In and show your SafeEntry Check In Pass on your mobile phone for verification by the security personnel at the entry points, before you are allowed into the campus. Alternatively you can produce your NRIC or Transitlink Concession Card for SafeEntry Check In via scanning at the entry points. When you leave the campus, you must do the SafetyEntry Check Out on your own.

  • After you have passed the SafeEntry Check In verified by the security personnel, you must then tap your student card (against the turnstiles at Dover MRT Station entrance in order to gain entry into campus.

  • All students must wear a mask when in campus. Face shields in lieu of masks are only allowed only for students who have health conditions that may result in breathing or medical difficulties when a mask is worn for a prolonged period of time. The face shields must cover the wearer’s entire face, from the forehead to below the chin, wrapping around the sides of the face. Face shields may be worn on top of a mask to provide additional protection.

  • Adhere to the strict safe distancing measures within campus so as to avoid risks of transmission.

  • Do not loiter around campus. You are only to proceed to those rooms specified for you, including where you can eat, and to use only restrooms near to these places.
     
  • Leave campus immediately after lessons and go straight home. Do not congregate or move about in groups. Safe Distancing Ambassadors will be stationed around campus to enforce safe distancing measures.
