Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), which was officially established on 16 February 1984, is the sixth Malaysian public university. The university was set up to focus in Management. The planning of the construction of this sixth university began in August 1983 when the Ministry of Education Malaysia began to give form, in earnest, to the idea of setting up this university. On 19th October 1983, the Cabinet gave its official approval for this project in Kedah. At that time, the project was called “The Sixth University Project”. Several months later, the temporary office of the sixth university, officially named Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), was officially opened on 15th February 1984 in Jitra.The permanent UUM campus, referred to as the Sintok Campus, commenced operations on 15 September 1990 and was officially opened on 17 February 2004 by the Royal Chancellor, His Royal Highness Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah. UUM has evolved into an open campus where outsiders and tourists are allowed the freedom to visit and utilise the various amenities within it. An area encompassing 107 hectares of forest has been developed into various facilities both to attract tourists to the northern region and to satisfy the recreational needs of the members of the campus community. Among these facilities are picnic areas, 18-holes golf course, a go-kart circuit, shooting and archery range, an equestrian site, and many others that are fast gaining popularity among tourists and the members of the campus community alike.
