Abu Dhabi University (ADU) announced it will build a $81.7m (AED300m) campus in Al Ain.

The 28,000m2premises will replace ADU’s current campus in Al Ain when it is completed on 1 September, 2019.

Phase 1 of the project features 70 classrooms and labs, 137 faculty and admin offices, a gym, a clinic, a food court, a library, and prayer rooms.

Up to 2,500 students will be accommodated within Phase 1, with the completion of Phase 2 set to raise the total capacity to 5,000.

The campus forms part of ADU’s initiatives towards the National Strategy for Higher Education 2030, WAM reported.

Commenting on the project, Ali Saeed bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, chairman of ADU’s board of directors, said: “The construction of the Al Ain campus comes in response to a directive by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region, Chairman of the Emirates Red Crescent, and Chairman of ADU’s Board of Regents, to expand the university’s offerings.

“The new campus aims to provide a modern holistic educational environment and meet the growing student demand at a time when the university has earned several international accolades.”
