Nanyang “Cool Campus” is a technologically-enabled campus environment for students, faculty and staff to work, live and play. This idea was mooted by Mr. Koh Boon Hwee, Chairman of NTU’s Board of Trustees. A Cool Campus Writing Contest was conducted in September 2008 and many creative ideas were suggested by students.
A Cool Campus Implementation Committee was formed and chaired by the Chief Information Officer in August 2009. Today, many of these cool ideas have materialized. Find out more from this site. http://coolcampus.ntu.edu.sg/SeamlessVideoWall.html

Implementation: 3 portrait 46″ F380i Video Wall in the beginning of 2010 at the lobby of President & CIO office (admin). With its highest display quality at native resolution of 2304 x 1366 (3 Million Pixels), it’s currently used as the main attraction to showcase campus virtual tour, publicity & more to come Youth Olympic Games for audiences who visiting the ‘MIT of Asia’.
Besides, the Youth Olympic Village for the inaugural games in Singapore in 2010 will now be located at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) campus.
This is a change from initial plans to site the Olympic Village at the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) S$500-million University Town, which is presently under construction.
