UPM is a public university that was founded in 1931 and the university achieved its modern state as a multidisciplinary institute in 1973. Its 16 faculties and approximately 32 000 students are divided between the Serdang main campus and the Bintulu satellite campus. UPM has already welcomed students from nearly 60 countries into its programs.

UPM was first establishes as the School of Agriculture in 1931. The establishment of Universiti Pertanian Malaysia, UPM’s previous name, came about when the College of Agriculture in Serdang merged with the Faculty of Agriculture of University of Malaya in 1971. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences, Faculty of Forestry, Faculty of Agriculture, and a Division of Foundation Studies were the first programs for students at Universiti Pertanian Malaysia, and the first three faculties have only grown in excellence since and are still among the most cutting edge departments at UPM today.

Since the early 1980s, UPM has aggressively extended its area of studies to include more and more fields of study. In 1997, the name Universiti Pertanian Malaysia was changed into Universiti Putra Malaysia by the former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, as a strategic gesture to portray the changing status of UPM as a centre of higher education capable of providing various fields of studies at an internationally recognized academic level.

The university has extensive sporting facilities. There is, for example, a fully equipped gym, sports hall, outdoor swimming pool, under soil drainage football pitch, Astroturf pitch for hockey, and an excellent floodlit athletics and football stadium. UPM features also an Olympic-sized swimming pool located in the Swimming Complex and international-standard tennis courts in the Tennis Complex. Some of the best grass pitches in the country, including an 18-hole professional golf course, are also located on campus. Golf for free as much as you want!
