NUSS opens fourth guild house

MEMBERS of the National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) will now have more choices for entertainment.

The Bukit Timah Guild House, a two-storey restored colonial bungalow on Cluny Road, was officially opened yesterday evening by President S R Nathan.

It houses a restaurant, jackpot room, cards and games room and lounge, and sits within the Singapore Botanic Gardens next to the National University of Singapore law campus. Facilities will be open for use to NUSS' 14,000 members.

During the launch, the President was also conferred the Patron of the Society. He was the first person to receive the honour.

Reliving his younger days, he stopped by at his former university hostel at nearby College Green, off Dunearn Road, where he had stayed for two years.

There were more than 200 guests at yesterday's event, including chairman of the National Research Foundation and former deputy prime minister Tony Tan, who also reminisced about his time at the Bukit Timah Campus.

The NUSS' other three guild houses are at Kent Ridge, Suntec City and Adam Park.
