One of the benefits of the University College life is the opportunity to make new friends, develop new interests and enjoy a varied social life. All the social and leisure activities of the University College are organized and supported by the students themselves, particularly through University College’s Department of Student Affairs.
Students are mainly from Kota Kinabalu, followed by students from other parts of Sabah which includes Sandakan, Tawau, Lahad Datu, Kudat, Kota Marudu to name. Some even comes from Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan, Sarawak and even Peninsular Malaysia, if students feel like venturing further into a field they will find a number of interesting places to visit. Students can have a 2 ½ hours ride from the city to the 754sq km Kinabalu Park and Mount Kinabalu, the pride of Sabah. This 4095m peak is easily accessible and is a favourite for jungle-trekker and mountain-climber with breathtaking view of the lush surroundings. There might be a chance to catch a glimpse of the exotic Rafflesia, the world’s largest flower. Students also can hop on a boat and head to the islands in Tunku Abdul Rahman Park which consist of 5 islands namely Sapi, Mamutik, Manukan, Sulug and Gaya.
