Sunway University (formerly Sunway College) was formed with the belief and understanding that higher education is vital to the progress of the Nation. The institution received an auspicious start in 1987 when it was officially opened by the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Alhaj Sultan of Selangor Darul Ehsan. Within a short span of time, its student numbers outgrew the original premises, eventually leading to the opening of the new, purpose-built campus.

Occupying 22 acres of prime land in Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya, the RM 120 million campus, fully equipped with academic, hostel and sports facilities is among the largest and most modern private institutions in Malaysia. By January 1993, all academic sessions were conducted here. The grandest moment in the history of Sunway University College came on April 29, 1993 when the campus was officially opened by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, then the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia. It represents a major investment by the Sunway Group towards education.

That moment declared the aspirations of Sunway University College to become a world-class institution and the leader in private education in Malaysia and the ASEAN region, in line with the Prime Minister's vision that Malaysia should become a centre for academic excellence.

With the infrastructure and excellent resources, Sunway University College is suitably poised to meet the future demand for tertiary education, and cope with the challenges and goals of Malaysia's Vision 2020.

Sunway University College has attained enviable success in producing students of outstanding calibre, many of whom have achieved prestigious awards. It is, thus, no wonder that Sunway University College has received the praise and accolades of VIP visitors, including Malaysian and foreign dignitaries and representatives from overseas institutions and twinning partners. Among them have been numerous distinguished professors of international repute who have given guest lectures while on their visits.
