The C-letter mark is modern, forward-thinking and fluid in design and simply denotes the town of Cyberjaya, our home. It is made up of 3 rings representing academic excellence, innovation, and social impact. The two diagonal intersections on the left of the C-letter mark are designed to create a forward-leaning motion illustrative of the university’s continuous advancement.
The purple embodies the noble values that the university seeks to nurture among all our graduates. A darker shade of purple was chosen to make a stronger and bolder statement. A dash of magenta was added to represent a caring and nurturing approach, a link with our previous motto, Nurturing the Passion to Care.
The university anthem is sung to celebrate the University and strengthen the esprit-de-corps. The following are its lyrics:-
From humble beginnings
Through many a tribulation
Nurturing the passion to care
A noble profession
Guided by teachers
Deserving respectful love
We are brothers and sisters
Striving for excellence
We seek knowledge
Divine and whole
Enriching the soul
Uplifting the character
For what is success
If it isn’t blessed
The joy and sadness
For the wrongs
The Path of God, straight
Do not deviate
Feel His Grace
His Mercy, embrace
May our varsity prosper
With His Pleasure
Serving all of humanity
Is our pleasure
