UTAR Kampar Campus

UTAR’s main campus in Kampar was built on a 1300-acre piece of land donated by the Perak State Government. It is located in the growing township of Bandar Barat Kampar in Perak. Strategically located off the North-South highway, Kampar Campus is 190 km from Kuala Lumpur which is slightly over two hours away from the city by car. The Campus welcomed its first intake of students in May 2007.

Flanked by picturesque mountains, dotted with scenic lakes and located within a growing township, Kampar Campus offers a conducive and serene learning environment. This Campus features modern educational facilities and provides students with access to some of the latest learning technologies and research innovations. In addition, the Campus has facilities for sports such as football, basketball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis and a gymnasium. The spacious campus grounds are also ideal for jogging and cycling.

The construction of Phase Two of the Kampar campus was completed in mid- 2012. With the completion of Phase Two, there are now 15 buildings in this lake-view campus including a grand hall with a seating capacity of 4,000, lecture theatres, tutorial rooms, a cafeteria, and the creation of more parking spaces.

Visitors to the panoramic UTAR Kampar Campus will unmistakably catch a glimpse of the exceptionally striking grand hall erected with architectural finesse on a 12,000-square metre plot of land. This palatial hall was built to commemorate UTAR's 10th anniversary and it was named after its illustrious founder, YABhg Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik who is now the Chancellor of UTAR.

Another unique feature in Kampar Campus is a pair of bronze sculptures; one of Confucius and the other of Einstein. These two imposing sculptures are located in front of Heritage Hall and weigh a total of 580kg. These sculptures symbolise UTAR's belief in the universality of learning and thinking with the convergence of wisdoms from both the East and the West.
