TAYLOR’S University College will give its students a new learning environment when the first phase of its lakeside campus is completed in 2009.  

Set on 10.9ha of greenery in Subang Jaya, the campus will have as its focus point a 2.2ha lake.  

It will also boast modern facilities, including a three-storey multipurpose hall, an auditorium, a four-storey library and a hostel with 1,000 beds.  

“When we designed the campus, we took the wind factor into account. The lake will have a cooling effect on the buildings.

“The idea has been welcomed by all,” said university college president Ooi Chee Kok at the unveiling of the plans for the campus last week. He added that the university college aimed to become full-fledged university.  

Asked if the university college would increase tuition fees following plans to build the RM450mil campus, Ooi said the fees would remain competitive.  

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who was guest-of-honour at the function, said the campus should be built in the shortest time possible.  

The campus is expected to have its first intake in January 2010.
