Using the Moller energy momentum definition in general relativity (GR) we calculate the total energy momentum distribution associated with (n + 2)-dimensional homogeneous and isotropic model of the universe. It is found that total energy of Moller is vanishing in (n + 2) dimensions everywhere but n-momentum components of Moller in (n + 2) dimensions are different from zero. Also, we evaluate the static Einstein Universe, FRW universe and de Sitter universe in four dimensions by using (n + 2)-type -metric, then calculate the Moller energy momentum distribution of these spacetimes. However, our results are consistent with the results of Banerjee and Sen, Xulu, Radinschi, Vargas, Cooperstock-Israelit, Aygun et at., Rosen, and Johri et al. in four dimensions.
