StarHub and NUS are partnering to integrate the former's 5G and IoT solutions into NUS. This comes as part of the university's smart campus innovations, and NUS hopes that the partnership will support its goal of being a Smart, Safe and Sustainable campus.

This partnership also means that NUS can now count itself among other schools, such as Singapore Polytechnic and Nanyang Technological University, as educational institutions partnering with telecommunications companies, with a focus on 5G.

The new collaboration between NUS and StarHub will begin in the form of trials over a two-year period, with the aim of identifying key areas and sharing knowledge between the two parties to develop smart campus solutions. One potential example of this partnership materialising is the use of StarHub's 5G IoT technology for the maintenance and management of campus facilities, such as notifications about water leakages.

The NUS campus is a prime living laboratory for us to reimagine Digital and Green applications, for a smarter, more sustainable future. 5G has come at a time when operational efficiency and climate change matters are fast becoming priorities for businesses, campuses, and government entities. Recognised as the world’s most sustainable Wireless Telecommunications Service Provider in 2022 Corporate Knights Global 100, we have gained renewed drive to enable like-minded organisations, such as NUS, to transform processes and infrastructure with innovative 5G solutions, to achieve their green goals. -- Charlie Chan, Chief, Enterprise Business Group, StarHub.

Another example of this collaboration is the deployment of StarHub's 5G Standalone (SA) services in NUS, as well as the university's 100% solar-powered outdoor Wi-Fi network, which complements the existing indoor wireless network.

To further awareness of this initiative to NUS students, both parties will be setting up a pop-up exhibition in the first half of 2022 for faculty, students and partners to see the benefits the partnership can bring.
