Best New University Campus in Malaysia at KDU University College

Glenmarie. KDU University College’s brand new 10-acre flagship campus within the Paramount Utropolis integrated development at Glenmarie, Shah Alam.

The campus’ entire architecture, down to the details of every amenity, is intended to create an environment that will inspire our students to strive for academic excellence and realise their dreams.

KDU University College picked Glenmarie as the location of their new campus because it is a fast growing township, with a young population of 200,000 within a 10km radius.

The area is also easily accessible via transportation links across the Klang Valley, thus making it convenient for students to commute to and from campus. KDU University College has moved to their new campus in early 2015. Scholarships are available for deserving students as well.
