Kota Damansara: SEGi University College is an up and coming higher institution which quite recently obtained its University College status. The colonial-roman look of its campus buildings is one of the first aspects that attract students and parents alike to choose SEGi University College to complete their tertiary education.

However, the RM150 million worth campus which occupies 10 acres of land in Kota Damansara seems to have its flaws. Many parts of the building, though still holds its original beauty, seems to have its flaws. Dents, cracks and moulds are found within the building and classrooms.

This is worrying as the campus was built only about three years ago. In the light of the collapse of Jaya Supermarket in Petaling Jaya and the roof of Sultan Mizan Abidin Stadium in Terengganu not so long ago, students and public are worried about the safety of the buildings in Malaysia.

A student from SEGi University College who only wants to be known as Cya said, “I think it’s a shame because it is a newly built building and for it to have cracks and stuff reflects on SEGi’s image. Questions such as whether cheap materials were used to build the campus and when the building is going to collapse arises. At time, I do feel it is not safe.”

SEGi University College’s main campus in Kota Damansara was officially launched by then Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in February 2008.

The quality of the buildings in Malaysia seems to have gone down over the years and the public are hoping for better regulation by the government to ensure public’s safety.
