Taman Universiti

 

Taman Universiti

Taman Universiti is a university town near Johor Bahru City in Malaysia. It is located between Skudai and Pulai. It was given bandaraya (town) status in 2002.

Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) is a 5-minute drive away from Taman Universiti, hence the name of the town. The town is dominated by civil servants (lecturers, office workers) and students from UTM. The university alone has 30,000 students who mostly live on campus but visit the town for their shopping.

Naming of area and roads

The town is divided into 10 areas; Pertanian (meaning agriculture), Penyiaran (broadcasting), Perubatan (medical), Perdagangan (trade), Kebangsaan (national), Kejayaan (success), Kebudayaan (Culture), Kemajuan (progress), Kemuliaan (honor), and Pendidikan (education). The word Jalan (street) is added in front of the area name and a number is added after the area name to complete the road system. For example, Jalan Kebangsaan 23. It was named so that all the areas that begin with the letter P are on the West side of the Jalan Pendidikan that is the main road running through Taman Universiti and areas that begin with the letter K on the east side of Jalan Pendidikan.

From this system, the heart of Taman Universiti is located at Kebangsaan zone where JUSCO Taman Universiti and most shops are located. View [www.taman-u.com] for taman Universiti Portal
