Campus information

The campus is made up of three buildings that consist of classrooms, workshops, studios and laboratories with the latest equipments and technological applications, enabling an interactive learning experience. In early 2014, a new building for interior design will be completed providing additional workshops, studios and sample room. The new space will also host Raffles Connexion, a place where students can mingle and relax with their peers.

Raffles College of Higher Education Kuala Lumpur is situated in the heart of the city and a 5-minute drive to Malaysia’s most famous landmark, the Petronas Twin Towers. Students benefit from being close to the action from the campus' convenient location. Students are able to watch design and business ideas unfold providing the visual inspiration to spur their creativity or the practical example that underpins their business principle learnt. This complements their studies and forms the bridge from classroom to real world.


Accommodation costs range from RM650 to RM1200. This is based on hostel accommodation within walking distance to the school. Apartment accommodation will depend on the location, type and facilities.
