Being a University student is an exciting time in your life that presents many opportunities and challenges. Here at Curtin Malaysia we understand these challenges and work hard to provide students with opportunities to enhance their university experience. Our Malaysia campus is a hive of activity, with a wide range of sports, social clubs, events and activities.

Enjoy lunch with your friends in the canteen or picnic on the sprawling grounds, work out in the gym or join a yoga class, browse the library or just take in the breathtaking equatorial sunsets after a day of classes, there really is something for everyone.

Serviced by our own transport network and with a wide range of services and support facilities, you will easily settle into studying at Curtin. There are on-campus food, retail, bookshop, housing, health, counselling and disability facilities to help you make the most of your study time.
