Our Story

A Leader of Transformation

Universiti Selangor (UNISEL), formerly known as Universiti Industri Selangor was established on 23rd August 1999. We are currently operating at two campuses; the sprawling 1000-acre Main Campus in Bestari Jaya and the City Campus in Shah Alam. Our establishment is in line with the State Government's intention to make Selangor the leading regional education hub.
