Occupying 23 acres of land in the Pearl of the Orient, TAR UC Penang Branch Campus was established in 1994 with the aim of enhancing equity and access to quality and affordable higher education in the northern region of Malaysia.
Penang Branch Campus strives to foster constant innovation and development. Our campus offers an impressive range of cutting-edge facilities which includes a three-storey purpose-built library, auditorium, twin lecture theatres, Electronic and Building Laboratories, Cisco Laboratory, Audio-Visual Studio, Club House (with an Olympic-sized swimming pool and covered multipurpose courts), Wi-Fi coverage throughout the campus and many other facilities awaiting to be explored.
Nestled amidst the lush and scenic greenery in the suburb of Georgetown, students of Penang Branch Campus will find themselves enjoying both the duality of Mother Nature and city life: the serenity of Mother Nature and also the excitement and fun that the city has to offer. Penang boasts of many tourists attraction sites: UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Fort Cornwallis, Khoo Kongsi to name a few; unique antiquated Street Art on the walls which are must-go sites for local and foreign tourists and the latest addition being the Jurassic Research Centre, all just a 15-minute drive away.
Other tourist attraction sites for students to relax are further away from Georgetown, lie the Escape Theme Park located at Teluk Bahang, and the mystifying Penang Avatar Secret Garden at Tanjong Bungah.
These outstanding features make Penang Campus an attractive place for students to pursue their tertiary education.
