Dover is a modest sub-zone of the Queenstown district, south of Ghim Moh and north of Kent Ridge. This neighbourhood is largely known for its abundance of education institutes, including Singapore Polytechnic, the first polytechnic started locally.

Dover is derived from the Celtic word meaning ‘The Waters', a reference to the English Channel. Dover was formerly a British military and residential area, which explains the largely Kentish place names in the vicinity. For instance, those in Medway Park off Dover Road include names associated with the southern coastal areas of England, including Folkestone and Maidstone, apart from Dover itself.

Prior to 1970, Dover was home to the St John's Army School, run by the British Army, but in lieu of the British military withdrawal from Singapore in 1971, it was vacated and replaced by the old Singapore International School in the same year.

There are well over 10 education institutes in Dover, including Singapore Polytechnic and a number of International Schools for the Japanese, Norwegian and other expatriate communities. Most worthy of note is The United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA) which holds about 2,900 students, making it one of the largest International Schools in Singapore since 1975.

Dover offers HDB housing as well as private condominiums, such as Dover Parkview and Heritage View.

Dover has a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) train station of the same name. Dover MRT station (EW22) is located right in front Singapore Polytechnic. Bus services 14, 74 and 166 are available from Dover MRT station to the heart of Dover neighbourhood.
