Universiti (or KL Gateway–Universiti for sponsorship reasons) [1] is a light rail transit station in Kuala Lumpur served by Rapid KL's Kelana Jaya Line. This station serves the local population of University of Malaya and neighbouring Kampung Kerinchi, Pantai Dalam and Pantai Hill Park.

Station naming rights program[edit]

Formerly known as Universiti since its operation on 1 September 1998, the station was renamed to KL Gateway–Universiti after Suez Capital, a local property development was given naming rights by Prasarana Malaysia. KL Gateway is the major redevelopment of Kampung Kerinchi into premium residential, shopping mall & office tower. It is the first three stations under pilot program of Station Naming Rights since launched in October 2015.[2]
