Getting there by Taxi

The most convenient way of getting to NTU from Changi Airport is by taxi. Taxis are available at the taxi stands at the Arrival Halls. Have the taxi driver take East Coast Parkway (ECP), then Pan Island Expressway (PIE) going towards Tuas, and exit at Pioneer North. At the main gate of the University, turn right into Nanyang Crescent. Not far away, you will be able to see a blue signage ?Nanyang Executive Centre? on your left. Turn left, drive along and you will notice the prominent building.

The ride will take around 30 to 40 minutes in smooth traffic. Taxis from the airport levy a S$3 surcharge on top of the metered fare.

Getting there by Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Bus

Should you choose to take the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system, the Changi Airport MRT station is accessible from the Arrival Halls at Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. Take the west-bound MRT from Changi Airport Station, transfer at Tanah Merah Station, and alight at Boon Lay Station on the East-West line. This trip will take around an hour. You may purchase a Standard Ticket for a single trip on the MRT from the General Ticketing Machine (GTM) located at the MRT station. The price includes a refundable deposit of $1 which can be claimed from the GTM by returning the ticket within 30 days after the date of purchase.

From Boon Lay MRT station to the Nanyang Executive Centre at NTU, you can take a short taxi ride of about 10 minutes. Alternatively, take public bus number 179 or 199 from Boon Lay Bus Interchange (located next to the MRT station). Do have some change ready for the bus fare. At the NTU campus, alight at B05 "Canteen 2" bus stop if you take bus 179, or B09 "Hall 8" bus stop if you take bus 199. Thereafter, take a 5-minute walk from the bus stop to the Nanyang Executive Centre.
