Significance of Sheares Hall Logo

The open book indicating a learning institution and the lion from the State Arms, adopted by the National University of Singapore for its crest, signify that Sheares Hall is an integral part of the University and the Republic of Singapore.

The motto "Dare to Reach the Highest", preserves links with its predecessor hostel, Dunearn Road Hostels (DRH). The red gules symbolizes power: power with which Shearites strive to dare to reach the highest in every realm - academic, physical, emotional, cultural and social.
