Duke-NUS Campus

Duke-NUS Medical School Facade

Duke-NUS Medical School is located in central Singapore in the heart of the country's largest healthcare cluster, Singapore Healthcare Group (SingHealth). The cluster is home to Singapore General Hospital (SGH), National Cancer Centre, National Dental Center, National Heart Centre, and Singapore National Eye Centre, all of which are part of the Singapore Healthcare Group and are closely affiliated to Duke-NUS’ students, faculty and research scientists.

The Duke-NUS campus is located within the Khoo Teck Puat Building, which comprises 28,000 square meters of floor space, including large research spaces, classrooms, teaching labs, and administrative offices. The interior of the building is organised around an 8-storey atrium, flanked by an 11-storey administrative tower and the 9-storey laboratory tower that contains 5 research floors with state-of-the-art teaching facilities. In March 2015, a 6-storey building annexe was added to the main tower blocks. 

The building’s design is strongly influenced by Singapore’s tropical climate, with an emphasis on sustainability. The primary materials are ceramics, glass and metal. With its brightly-lit atrium, open staircases, hallways and interspersed casual meeting spots, the architectural layout encourages easy exchange between faculty, researchers, students and administrators.

The Duke-NUS Campus was recognised as a project of outstanding construction excellence in the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) 2011 Awards, Institutional Buildings Category.
