Semenyih (2.9 N, 101.85 E) is a small town in Selangor, Malaysia, about 8 km southeast of Kajang along the Kajang-Seremban road. The meaning of the name of the town is not certain. It might have been derived from a word in the Negeri Sembilan dialect, meaning "hidden". The town is becoming less and less hidden as the Kuala Lumpur conurbation (usually called the Klang Valley) expands. The town shares its name with the Semenyih River, which is the main river passing near the town. The catchment area of this river is an important source of water for Kuala Lumpur and other parts of the Klang Valley.

Also, the university is a building more halls of residence inside the campus itself.
