It is also the capital of the West Coast Division of Sabah. The city is located on the northwest coast of Borneo facing the South China Sea. The Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park lies to its west and Mount Kinabalu, which gave the city its name, is located to its east.

In March 1973, ITM Sabah Branch was established with the cooperation and support from the Sabah Foundation and State Government. The temporary campus was in Sembulan and the first intake in July of that year comprised 159 students. On 17 August of the same year, the campus was officially open by the then Chief Minister of Sabah. Then in January 1982, a large majority of the student population was transferred to the permanent campus at Kuala Menggatal after the completion of its hostel blocks and other facilities. The move was completed in 1991 and now the university is known as UiTM Sabah.
