Sheares Hall offers only single-room accommodation for NUS students. Each room is furnished with a single bed, a ceiling fan, a writing desk and chair, book shelves, a wardrobe and a pin board.
Sheares Hall has 5 residential blocks (A to E) and one administrative block (F) with each block having its own unique character and culture. Unlike other halls, Sheares Hall residents will normally stay in the same block for the duration of their candidature.
Shower and toilet facilities as well as kitchenettes are available on every floor. Each block also has its own residents' lounge, a laundry room and a large kitchen equipped with stoves and other cooking utensils. In addition, Block B to E have rooftop terraces for residents to host block events and social activities.
Each block is accessible through gates that require electronic keycard access by residents only. A security guard patrols the hall at night to keep the place safe. CCTV cameras are present in most common areas throughout the hall.
