About Curtin University, Malaysia
Located in Miri, Sarawak; Curtin Malaysia boasts a 1,200-acre garden campus and modern facilities befitting its status as Curtin’s largest international campus, and one of Malaysia’s leading tertiary institutions according to Malaysia’s SETARA ratings.
Our campus in Miri, Sarawak offers a completely unique study experience. Located in the East Malaysia, with the incomparable, 187 000 hectare Miri-Sibuti Coral Reef National Park just offshore, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gunung Mulu National Park, a mere 45 minutes away, our campus is a gateway to all of the incredible adventures to be had in East Malaysia.
Miri is often referred to as the ‘Oil Town of Malaysia’ as it is home to the country’s over 100-year-old petroleum industry, as well as Sarawak’s ‘Resort City’ given its scenic seaside location and being the gateway city to the area’s world renowned natural attractions. The oil and gas industry remains the largest contributor to the economy of Sarawak but other industries such as forestry and agriculture burgeoned in the years following Sarawak’s independence through the formation of Malaysia in 1963. In recent years, the construction, shipbuilding, retail, financial services, tourism, education and manufacturing sectors have also contributed greatly to the city’s rapid economic growth. Today, Miri boasts a splendid waterfront, marina, shopping malls, luxury condominiums, two 18-hole golf courses, international class hotels and a modern airport.
The university provides in and off campus accommodation to the students. Lakeside Apartments is located in the campus; Curtin Villa and Curtin Water 2 is located about 1-3km away from the campus. Free shuttle bus service is available to pick up and drop off students saying at the off campus accommodation. 24 hours security are also available for both in and off accommodation.
