ON CAMPUS LEARNING AND SUPPORT SERVICES

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 and counselling facilities to help you make the most of your study time.
