Background Information


MISC Student Residential Hall (DPP MISC) was known as the Ninth College previously and one of the fifteenth residential halls in UUM. It started its operation by receiving the first batch of residents in 1990 when UUM moved to its permanent campus in Sintok. DPP MISC is located in the north side of UUM Map and has six blocks that could home 756 residents at times. In its early operations, DPP MISC was meant for matriculation students of UUM until 1999 and under the administration of Housing and Student Services Unit (U3P), Student Affairs Department (HEP). During the restructuring process of UUM that took place in early 2009, the administration of DPP MISC was transferred to UUM College of Arts and Sciences.


However, a year later, UUM made another restructuring initiatives and DPP MISC was placed under the administration of Student Accommodation Centre (SAC), HEP. At this moment, DPP MISC has been one of the preferred residential halls among students from the Middle East and those who are active in sports. In addition to that, many choose to stay at DPP MISC due its strategic location and complete facilities provided for students.


Therefore, the Student Leadership and Development Committee (JKPS) of DPP MISC endeavours to organise activities that encourage students to get involved throughout their stay at DPP MISC. The activities organised every semester include sports, academic, spiritual & self-development, character building, entrepreneurship, leadership and many more. Beginning Second Semester, Session 2010/2011, DPP MISC has been upgraded as a residential hall for UUM athletes.



Moreover, DPP MISC has also been a preferred residential hall among corporate, private and government agencies to stay during semester break due to its close location to Sport Centre, University Health Centre, Golf Course, Mu’adzam Shah Hall, Varsity Mall and Sultan Badlishah Mosque.
