UEP Subang Jaya (commonly called "USJ") is a major affluent residential township located in Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia. It is located within the Mukim (sub-district) of Damansara in the district of Petaling.


The construction of USJ started in 1988 after the completion of Subang Jaya which consists of SS12 to SS19 that was started in 1974.[citation needed] Almost 80% of USJ was developed by Sime UEP. USJ is under the jurisdiction of Subang Jaya Municipality Council since 1997. The first batch of residential communities were ready circa early 1990s. Since then, USJ has expanded into 27 sections, i.e. USJ 1 to USJ 27. In addition to that, there are USJ located on the west side of the township. Most of the areas in USJ are sitting on a freehold-title land tenure, the bungalow section of USJ, and a guarded fence-less neighborhood called Restrees.

In the late 1990s, many new developments were growing rapidly in USJ. However, due to the economic crisis in 1997, it resulted in three large abandoned high-rise projects .[1] By 2010, these abandoned projects had been revived and completed construction.[2] In recent years, there are plenty of mixed commercial developments around the township to cater the highly affluent population.


USJ is covered under N31 Subang Jaya (which includes SS12-19, USJ 1-15 and PJS 7, 9, 11) in the Selangor State Assembly. The State Assemblyman (Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri, ADUN) is Democratic Action Party (DAP)'s Micchell Ng(Ms) who took over the seat from Democratic Action Party Hannah Yeoh since 9 May 2018.

In the Parliament, USJ is under the P104 Kelana Jaya constituency. The current Member of Parliament (MP) is Wong Chen of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) who replaced Loh Gwo Burne in 2013. Loh Seng Kok of BN-MCA was MP from 2004 to 2013.
