It’s the Open House season! For those of you who are heading down to the Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) Open House, we’ve got you covered with these to-dos so you can enjoy the full NYP experience. Let’s go!
First, take a wefie
Before the crowd starts to gather, make a beeline for the social media photo booth located at the atrium for a group photo with your squad. Get your wefie printed on the spot, and off you go to explore the campus grounds!
Snag free swag bags
Like every other kiasu Singaporean, redeeming an awesome goodie bag for yourself at the Open House should always be at the top of your checklist. We’re expecting these babies to be snapped up real quick, so be sure to pre-register your interest to secure yourself a goodie bag.
Try your hand at making your own gear
Fancy getting crafty? Pop by NYP’s MakerSpace at Blk P, Level 2 where you can experience the freedom to create anything you can imagine with the help of NYP innovators – think self-designed T-shirts, quirky costumes, adorable plush toys, personalised skateboards, mechanised robots… you name it. You can even take home your own customised notebook and tote bag!
Get firsthand deets on your desired course
Have yet to decide on your diploma of choice? Head down to the Course & Career Exhibition at the Auditorium Lobby (Blk A, Central, Level 1) to find out more about NYP’s 44 Diploma courses and three Engineering programmes, including the new Diploma in Robotics and Mechatronics.

Get the chance to meet ShiGGa Shay

The homegrown rapper will be performing his discography of rap-heavy hits as part of the NYPTV On Air ‘Live’ from 6pm to 7pm, so drop by the Atrium Stage (Blk A, Central, Level 1) to catch the ‘Lion City Kia’ in action!
Be treated to enthralling vocal performances
Lots of fun activities await during the NYP Night Open House, but what we’re particularly looking forward to is the much-anticipated finals of the NYP Jam! Singing Competition happening from 7pm to 9pm at the Atrium Stage. Hosted by Mediacorp 987 DJ Kimberly Wang, watch the singing hopefuls as they belt out their best in a bid to impress the crowd.
Join in the dance party
The party’s just getting started! From 9pm to 11pm, the Atrium Stage will then be transformed into a full-blown dancefloor with student DJs from NYP’s very own Live Audio Club hitting the decks for a super-charged dance fest.
Witness the final showdown of NYP Groove!
Last but not least, show your support for the talented dance crews that will be battling it out for the crowning glory at the NYP Groove! 2018 Street Dance Competition finals on 6 January, 1pm. We’ve seen ’em slay at the auditions, and we can’t wait to find out which team will emerge victorious!
