Lakeview of UTAR Main Campus Kampar

The buildings across the lake belongs to University Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) main campus in Kampar, Perak. It is located off the North South Highway about 190 km or 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur city. Kampar is a century old, ex-mining, historical town with scenic blue mountains and tranquil lakes. Hopefully this place is a conducive environment for students to study, away from the congestions and distractions of a big city.

The campus master plan was designed by an internationally renowned educational planning consultant and sits on 1,300 acres of land.

A ground breaking ceremony was held on 12 January 2003 officiated by YABhg Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir Bin Mohamad, then Prime Minister of Malaysia, who delivered the keynote address as the guest of honour.

UTAR campus opened its doors to the first batch of students in May 2007. By July 2009, there were already more than 16,000 students studying here.

UTAR address is as follows:
Jalan Universiti
Bandar Barat
31900 Kampar, Perak
Tel: 605-468 8888
Fax: 605-466 1313

If you were a student, do you prefer the campus to be located in the countryside, a small city or a big city?

This is my entry for Weekend Reflections #60. To participate or view what others have posted for Weekend Reflections, please visit here.


  1. What a gorgeous setting for a university. I would think the tranquility would be helpful for study, but one never knows.

    The reflections are perfect - with the mist shrouded mountains in the background ...

  2. Definitely a lovely setting for a university. Personally, I would love an environment like this for my college/university. In fact the university I graduated from was in a very small town and it was great. But then I'm long past college student age today!! Terrific capture and wonderful reflections for the day! Enjoy your weekend!!


  3. I've never seem this, having left Malaysia before 03. Great that MY has more unis now, but even then, there are lots of Msian's opting to study overseas.

    Nice countryside though... I'd love to be away from the city now... but if I were 20, I'd prefer to stay in the city, where all the action is!

  4. Well, I did all 3, but my favorite study place was this small university, 3500 students in a town of 10.000, in the countryside. Great times!

  5. Les brumes des tropiques relèvent leur jupes pour nous faire admirer cet étonnant paysage que vous avez la gentillesse de partager avec nous... C'est superbe.

  6. Thanks to blogger because you upload a nice picture daily about Malaysia.Which is so awesome.
