It combines a high-quality living environment with state-of-the-art learning and recreational facilities. It is well equipped with a range of amenities including a bookshop, cafe, convenience store and health centre. The Students’ Association building and purpose-built sports complex – comprising a gym, basketball, squash and tennis courts, a hockey field, running tracks and a swimming pool – provide a range of activities to suit the needs of the diverse student population.
Transport is available from the campus to the nearest bus and rail stations, providing easy access to Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding region.
Malaysia is a pluralist culture based on a vibrant and interesting fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous communities. English is widely spoken and the Malaysian Constitution guarantees freedom of worship.

In the city centre, there are many old colonial buildings, a vibrant Chinatown with street vendors and night markets, and a bustling Little India.
