Abu Dhabi University (ADU) has announced that it has invested more than AED20 million in expanding and enhancing facilities across its campuses in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Dubai for the academic year 2018-2019.

The enhanced facilities include a mosque, a community centre, a football field and basketball court at the Abu Dhabi campus, as well as a student guidance centre across each of the three campuses.

Improvements have also been made to the laboratories and classrooms, while electrical works and internet connectivity across all three campuses have been upgraded.

Ali Saeed bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, chairman of ADU’s executive board, said: “ADU is keen to provide a conducive environment for students that fosters creativity and innovation, and encourages them to excel on an academic as well as personal level.”

He added: “Academic institutions in the UAE play a major role in articulating our leadership’s vision to develop a knowledge-based economy and help consolidate the UAE’s status as a destination of choice for world-class higher education.”

He said the expansion of infrastructure was carried out in response to the sustained high demand for ADU’s academic programs. Abu Dhabi University currently hosts over 7,000 students of 70 different nationalities across its three campuses.
