New UMP campus facing water woes

UNIVERSITI Malaysia Pahang (UMP) is a technical university located in the Prime Minister’s constituency of Pekan.

This new campus has three faculties with 1,300 students living in nine residential blocks.

As a student, it is not my intention to give the university a bad name but there is a major problem here concerning water shortage.

We have been suffering from this since the beginning of semester 1 2011/2012.

The administration has held a dialogue with the students but has not come up with a concrete solution to this problem.

Various excuses have been given, such as low pressure due to the small diameter of the pipe.

The campus has many water storage towers and three big lakes, yet the problem persists.

The student representative council plans to bring this issue to the attention of Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak. This may be the only way to resolve the issue.

I hope with this letter, the top management will do something.

Remember this is an university, not a team-building camp where there is a restriction of basic necessities.


Universiti Malaysia Pahang.
