Student housing & college residence life at UPM strives to ensure that a living and learning environment is the foundation of its residence culture. Every effort is made to ensure that the students' residence life experience will foster their holistic development as well as being fully supportive of their academic programme. Residence life is a special experience. Staying in a UPM residence is an extension of the students' university education, where they can benefit from all the facilities and services such as student learning centres, social and sporting activities, life-skills and peer-tutoring programmes. A residence is a community in which one meets a range of diverse students and forges life-long friendships.
