It was from near Lower Kent Ridge Road and South Buona Vista Road, near the National University Hospital. The station gets its name from the region known originally as Pasir Panjang Ridge, Kent Ridge, to honor the Duke and Duchess of Kent’s visit.

The Kent Ridge MRT station’s construction began in January 2005. This station was once known as “National University Hospital” until being renamed “Kent Ridge” on January 19, 2006, to correspond with the Kent Ridge geographical feature. After the MRT station was from September 23, 2010, the building of Kent Ridge commenced. The station gets its name from the location previously known as Pasir Panjang Ridge but was renamed Kent Ridge in honor of a visit by the Duke and Duchess of Kent.
The systems at Kent Ridge station formed an island platform configuration. Full-height Platform display screen entrances separate the air-conditioned station from the subway environment, increasing commuter safety and station comfort. The platform degree is linked to the concourse degree flooring above by escalators, stairs, and a boost. The concourse extends around the platform, creating an immense enclosed space that gives the station a vast atmosphere.
Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each station, display estimated train arrival times and necessary notifications. Tactile flooring makes it easier for the sight-impaired to go from the platform to the station exits.
The Concourse on Basement 1 includes automatic fare collecting entrance doors and connects the toll and non-toll portions of the station, with at least one two-way swing door for the convenience of passengers with wheelchairs, those carrying heavy loads, or those traveling with baby carriages. General ticket machines sell single and multi-journey tickets, contactless card transactions, and refill machines. The station office serves as the Passenger Service Center, where travelers may make travel queries.
Since ancient times, interacting via recitation or composing poetry has been an essential cultural practice. However, with their immersion in quickly evolving technology, the interests of the present generation tend to neglect and esteem old literary techniques such as poetry less. On the other hand, cultural computing employs a variety of approaches to mimic existing civilizations so that users may engage with and experience such cultures through current computing applications. This work mixes old literary works with current digital technology to offer a familiar and entertaining platform for the next generation to enjoy traditional literary works. Poetry Mixup encourages users to text to a computerized poetry generator to create a range of “remixed” poems.
