The University of Nottingham Malaysia is located at the heart of Semenyih, in case you haven’t been there before, you should visit there someday to witness one of the biggest university campuses in Malaysia.

Today, I will be sharing with you what you can expect from our campus itself. The University of Nottingham Malaysia is a franchised branch campus of the University of Nottingham majority-owned by Boustead Holdings Sdn Bhd. The university is situated in Semenyih, Hulu Langat District, Selangor, Malaysia. The university has been ranked as "excellent" or tier 5 in a scale of tier 1-6 and is classified as a private institution, by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education. The Malaysia campus is primarily based on a 125-acre (0.51 km2) plot situated in Semenyih, Selangor.

The Sports Complex on campus houses recreational facilities such as two tennis courts, two squash courts, two badminton courts, a 25m swimming pool, a small gym and one big multipurpose field for rugby, football, frisbee, etc. There is also a martial arts room within the complex. The complex also has a multipurpose hall with two multipurpose courts for basketball, dodgeball, futsal, volleyball, and badminton. 

In my personal opinion, what I felt unique about this university is how it is really connected in a way that everything here really feels like a whole and just a stone’s throw away. For example, you wouldn’t even need five minutes to travel from your lecture hall to the finance office itself. This means that this university does have its perks when it comes to convenience. 

The on-campus residence is prioritized to be allocated to the international students and first-year freshmen, while the senior students would generally stay off-campus in the nearby neighborhood of Taman Tasik Semenyih. While there are plans to further increase the number of on-campus student accommodation, the university can be seen to focus on expanding off-campus housing instead. Private accommodation is also available directly opposite the main entrance to the campus called UniVillage.

All in all, it would still be a better experience for you to really visit the campus itself because words may be exactly envision how the campus really looks like, and I can assure you that it will be an eye-opener for you to check out our campus.
