The first UMS campus was sited at the site of the then Sabah Foundation Community College, KKYS (now University College Sabah Foundation, UCSF) on their grounds. The first intake consisted of 205 undergraduates, with its residences located just beside the football field, on the compound of Yayasan Sabah.

Initially, the university management office operated at the Malaysian Ministry of Education in Kuala Lumpur. It shifted to Kota Kinabalu in 1995.

On August of the same year, physical development began to take place on a 999-acre (4 km²) land, located at the northern part of Kota Kinabalu City. The first phase of its construction was completed in 2000.

UMS opened an International Campus in Labuan.
