UiTM-SISU was founded following the funding received from the Erasmus+ Southeast Asia Social Innovation Network project. It was established in August 2017, located at a prime location within the UiTM’s main campus vicinity. Given the roles that UiTM-SISU wishes to fulfill, it was only apt that the UiTM-SISU be located at the UiTM-Malaysian Technology Development Corporation building, which also houses UiTM’s Research Innovation Business Unit (RIBU).

The UiTM-SISU is equipped with a meeting room, a training room, an Ideation cubicle, a small whiteboard, a plasma TV, an interactive board and a projector. It is hoped that with the inception of UiTM-SISU, it will provide a hub for social innovators to convene, discuss and innovate more inventions that benefit the community and the society better.
