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:
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?
