Since the early years of its establishment, IIUM has practiced 100% accommodation for its full-time undergraduate students. For postgraduate students, accommodation is provided based on availability of rooms. Priority is given to non-Malaysian students, especially students from the newest intake.
Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Mosque
The Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Mosque is at the centre of Gombak Campus.
The mosque's main prayer hall has a maximum capacity of 9000 people, with female prayer halls on the second and third levels. The mosque organizes lectures, seminars and classes on concepts such as marriage and janazah, Tilawah and Tahfiz Al-Qur'an, as well as activities such as Qiyamullail and Tarbiyyah and training for students.
The main IIUM Campus is nestled in a valley in the rustic district of Gombak, a suburb of the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. This Garden of Knowledge and Virtue covers 700 acres, with elegant Islamic-style buildings surrounded by green-forested limestone hills, attracts avid photographers from among both locals and tourists.

A fibre-optic backbone runs through the entire campus, facilitating instant communication from one corner of the campus to another.
Accessibility to Kuala Lumpur from the campus is made easy not only by efficient bus and taxi services, but also by a light rail station close to the campus.
About 250 kilometres of Kuala Lumpur is the Kuantan Campus, 1,000 acres of a virtual garden nestled within a valley surrounded by thick forest. This is where the Medical-Science, Pharmacy, Allied Health Sciences, Nursing and Dentistry faculties are located.

This campus is as well-equipped as the Kuala Lumpur campus. The physical facilities feature architectural themes that are generally similar to those of the Kuala Lumpur campus, but there are distinguishing motifs that imbue the Kuantan campus with a character that makes it distinctive and yet remain connected to the IIUM order.
