In 2006, Taylor’s was granted ‘University College’ status, which resulted in two distinct identities under the tertiary arm of the brand – Taylor’s College and Taylor’s University College.
Work commenced to build the RM450 million Taylor's University Lakeside Campus, in Subang Jaya, in early 2007 and was completed in January 2010.
Officially awarded as a full-fledged university status in September 2010 by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, Taylor’s is now one of the nation’s leading private higher education institutions.
Taylor's University established its Lakeside Campus in 2010 to accommodate the ever-expanding number of students. On the grounds of the campus itself lies Syopz, a commercial block with restaurants and shops. U Residence, the official accommodation for students, is also located there.
Completed in January 2010 and set on 27-acres of tropical greenery, the integrated purpose-built campus surrounds a 5.5-acre man-made lake, as well as a landscape of water plants, trees, and flowering shrubs.
In 2011, Taylor’s received the Special Honour Award from the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia in Category 3: Professional Awards in Landscape Design and Planning. The Lakeside Campus was awarded in all three building categories of Interior Design, Architecture and Landscape.
