Drinking water should be free from harmful levels of impurities such as heavy metals and inorganic element. Contamination of heavy metal in drinking water can poses adverse health effects to human body. Cross sectional comparative study was conducted in University Malaysia Pahang campus Gam bang at residential college 1, 3 and 4 for measure the heavy metal concentration, physical and chemical properties. Through this research, the perception of water quality at the college was measured by distributed the questionnares to the resident. The instrument used in data collection was Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) to measure the concentration of heavy metal which is lead (Pb ), copper (Cu), nickel (Ni), cadmium (Cd), zinc (Zn), chromium (Cr) and aluminium (Al) in tap water. Most of heavy metal concentration were below than 0.100 ppb. Aluminium concentration was 120.0 ppb at residential college 4 but it still in safe level as drinking water.
