The National University of Singapore (Abbreviation: NUS) is a comprehensive research university located in Singapore, being the flagship tertiary institution of the country which has a global approach to education and research. Founded in 1905, it is the oldest higher learning institute in Singapore, as well as the largest university in the country in terms of student enrolment and curriculum offered.

The university's main campus is located in southwest Singapore at Kent Ridge, with an area of approximately 1.5 km2. The Bukit Timah campus houses the Faculty of Law, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and research institutes, while the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore is located at the Outram campus.

The statues seen here represent "Wealth" and "Contentment" and they are the work of Singaporean Ng Eng Teng (1934-2001), sculpted in 1974. They are part of the art collection of NUS.
