Abu Dhabi University (ADU) is preparing to make the much-anticipated move to its brand-new campus in Al Ain. It is located in Al Ain’s Asharej district and meets One-Pearl Estidama requirements for design and operational sustainability.
Dr. Hamad Odhabi, Director of ADU’s Al Ain campus, commented, “With its state-of-the-art facilities, the Al Ain campus will serve as an integral part of ADU’s mission to enhance the lives of students, helping them attain their academic goals, and prepare them for the workforce by developing their practical and professional skillsets.”
The new building will accommodate 2,500 students in the first stage and 5,000 students after the completion of the second stage.
The campus will span an area of 28,000 square meters initially, expanding to an area of 54,000 square meters once completed, which is equivalent to approximately eight football fields. The campus will house more than 70 classrooms and a laboratory that adopts modern educational methods, as well as open spaces to facilitate collaboration among students. Additionally, the University will include a total of 137 offices for faculty and administrative staff.
The campus will include a plethora of modern facilities constructed according to best practices such as a gym, an aerobics centre, a games room, café, a restaurant lounge, a club hall, a meeting room, an indoor playground, and a medical clinic. The campus will also house a library with a reading area, a book area, discussion rooms, and a student council centre.
