1.0Introduction about the topic.
Public universities in Malaysia are funded by the Government and are governed as self-managed institutions. While Private universities in Malaysia are universities not operated by governments, although many receive tax breaks, public student loans, and grants. Depending on their location, private universities may be subject to government regulation. Because there are university that run by government and non government , there are some aspects that can differentiate between public and private universities. We choose our own university, University Selangor ( UNISEL) as private university and University Teknologi Mara (UITM) as public university for our research. As we can see IPTA is more strict compared to IPTS including the rules, the clothing etiquette , the way of learning in universities and also the environment. For our research, we choose to make a comparison about the clothing etiquette in lecture hall between UNISEL students and UITM students. We think that clothing etiquette in Public and Private universities are sometimes burdening the students. By choosing this topic, we hope that we can make both universities students more clearer about the clothing etiquette, and follow the rules without hesitation.

1.1Problem Statement.
Nowadays, it is quite obvious that the clothing etiquette among the students in lecture hall between University of Selangor (Unisel) and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) are different from top toe. We have noticed that this type of rules take place are due to the government and non-government policies in university. From our point of view, we have found that UiTM students are more attached to the rules compared to the Unisel students. We are not sure is it because of the ‘government’ that the students have to dress formally? Do the students really follow the policies that had been made by the university?

1.2Research Questions.
From the problem statements, we have found that there are two massive questions that can be expanded in search for the answers for this research. Firstly, did the students from both universities think their clothing etiquette to lecture hall is suit enough? Another big question is how often did the students follow the clothing restriction made by both universities?

1.3Significance of the study.
Our purpose for this study is we actually wanted to highlight the thing that students from both universities usually take as a simple matter while it is not. Besides giving the benefits to the university students, this study also helps the universities, the lecturers, the policy maker and the public to become more alert to subject that we have been focused about.

1.4Limitation of the study.
For our research, we observed 50 students. 25 are from Universiti Selangor Bestari Jaya campus and another 25 are from Universiti Teknologi Mara Shah Alam campus. We chose to observe the students from UiTM Shah Alam is because it is the nearest public university we could found from our campus which is Unisel Bestari Jaya campus. All of the 50 students that we observed are from the same course for both universities; Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) students. The students from Unisel Bestari Jaya campus whom are getting involved in our research study are multi-racial. 15 them are Malay, 7 of them are Indian and the remaining 3 are Chinese. While for UiTM Shah Alam, all the 25 students are Malay due to the UiTM policy which only accept Bumiputera students.
