The newest and biggest residential college built in the University of Malaya, the Twelfth Residential College was completed in 2002, and is a collection of five interconnected buildings, Block A, Block B, the Cafeteria, Block C and Block D. The college is named after his Majesty, His Royal Highness Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah Ibni Sultan Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah, who honoured the University by opening the Residential College in a ceremony on the 26th of February 2005.
The college has the capacity to house an amazing 2990 people comfortably at any one time, and provides the University’s many undergraduates and postgraduates with some of the newest facilities in UM. The college only provides lodging, but the cafeteria is a very popular destination even among visitors to the residential college due to its accessibility and affordability. There are currently approximately 2000 students staying at the Residential College. The security office also has its main office here.
