The University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) brings together cutting-edge teaching, learning and social facilities in a state-of-the-art, purpose-built, campus. Based in EduCity in Iskandar, the 30,000 square-metre site is made up of two buildings, centred around a central atrium known as the 'Heartspace', an area inspired by the Whiteknights campus in Reading, UK.
All teaching areas are flexible and available to be used for every subject, rather than being divided under departmental control. This means that it is suitable for teaching a cross-section of the University's academic disciplines taught in Malaysia, including business, finance, psychology, quantity surveying and real estate. In all, the campus has the long-term capacity for 3,000 students. Trevor Hawkins, Director of Estates and Facilities, UoRM, said: "We are immensely proud of our new building. It is a state-of-the-art showcase for what we can achieve with sustainable design combined with innovative, flexible teaching; cutting-edge research facilities; and great student social spaces".
