About The Host

ktdiKolej Tun Dr. Ismail is one of the residential colleges for the students of University Putra Malaysia. With its elegant buildings, yet modern facilities, it is one of the earliest colleges in University Putra Malaysia. Strategically built in UPM, Kolej Tun Dr. Ismail is able to provide excellent and comfortable accommodation of three nights stay for participants.

Kolej Tun Dr. Ismail was one of the earliest resident colleges built in University Putra Malaysia. It was formerly known as the Third College. With the costs of  RM 2.3 million, the construction process began on February 1973 and finished on July 1975. The name of the college, Tun Dr. Ismail, was taken from our great second ex – Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Ismail. This new name was officially used on 1st January 1995.

Kolej Tun Dr Ismail has many experiences in organizing activities involving students from different races. In fact being a host of sports and cultural activities, we also have experience in organizing ‘Pertandingan Debat Diraja Institusi Pengajian Awam 2000’ which is the Royal Debate and ‘Kejohanan Debat Ala Parliment as well as other inter-college debate competitions.

Kolej Tun Dr. Ismail is also known as the Garden Of Flowers as its four hostel blocks are named after flowers’ such as Melati, Mawar, Kenanga and Melur. Other parts in the compound are the Main Office, Cafeteria, Bilik Cempaka and Bilik Anggerik. Facilities in the college include pigeon hole, computer room, a mini market, studio,   gymnasium, and laundry services. The college administration had a roof built for Dataran Melur to make it more conducive and suitable to hold reception and event.



There are three assembly areas provided for the college citizens such as the Dataran Melur, Dataran Bunga Tanjung and Dataran Melati. These three assembly areas are used for all sorts of activities. Besides that, the college is also equipped with several sport facilities such as the volley ball court, badminton court and netball court. Recently, the college had a multipurpose court built. The mulitpurpose court caters to all kind of sports like volley ball, basket ball, futsal and sepak takraw. So for those who would like to lose some sweat, why not get a few friends and have fun at the multipurpose court.

Yup… we know it is not a five-star hotel but we can assure you that we will provide excellent accommodation for all of you. Even though it is one of the earliest colleges in UPM but no worries as our hostels still look good and in tip top condition. Most of all it is always kept clean…that’s most important.
