The 15 residential halls are Proton, Tradewinds, TNB, Mas, Maybank, Petronas, Eon, Sime Darby, TM, MISC, BSN, Bank Muamalat, Yayasan Albukhary, SME Bank and Bank Rakyat.

Moreover, this sport complex is frequently used by outside institution, organization and primary and secondary school for their sporting events.
