JOHOR BARU: Property developer Mah Sing Group Berhad has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Netherlands Maritime Institute of Technology (NMIT) to provide fully-furnished accommodation for students.

Located just 20 minutes away from NMIT, the accommodation at Meridin@Medini has a two-way shuttle bus service to EduCity as well as to Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) Johor.

Students also get to experience the full recreational facilities in Meridin@Medini such as swimming pool, gym, community centre, meeting rooms, tennis court as well as have access to the Meridin Walk Lifestyle Mall and high-speed internet.

Mah Sing’s senior general manager of development (southern region) Benjamin Ong said he was glad that the company was able to provide suitable accommodation for students studying at NMIT.

“Mah Sing is always looking ahead to work with different parties in enhancing the life of the community around our development as it is in line with our company’s vision.

“Following our partnership with EduCity Iskandar Malaysia and i2M Ventures Sdn Bhd earlier this year, this is the third collaboration that we have formed to provide an ideal accommodation to the community studying or working around Iskandar Puteri,” he said.

He also wished students all the best and hope that they could excel in their studies as well as enjoy their life as a student with NMIT.

Meanwhile, NMIT director Dr Mohd Farhan Razali said the maritime industry was growing globally as well as locally and more students were enrolling in NMIT.

“By partnering with Mah Sing to provide the ideal accommodation for our 500 students here at Iskandar Puteri, we believe that this would help to create a conducive living environment for them and enhance their learning experience.

“The location and modern features of Meridin@Medini coupled with the additional facilities provided for the tenants will be able to fulfil the needs of our students.

“We foresee that this partnership will benefit our students in many aspects,” he added.
