KU Campus Expansion
Khalifa University will be undergoing a dramatic change in the coming years as the demand for higher education in the UAE continues to grow. In line with the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, Khalifa University has begun construction on a campus expansion project that will see the school over triple in size, from 33,000 square meters to 120,000 square meters, by 2015. The campus expansion will include:
- A large auditorium with a capacity of 500
- A new student hub complete with restaurants, a gymnasium and other sporting facilities
- Cutting edge classrooms, engineering laboratories and research facilities
- Facilities that will house Khalifa University’s new medical school
The campus expansion will support Khalifa University’s rapidly growing community and will ensure that both future and current students have access to the highest quality of educational services, which will help to ensure KU achieves its goal of becoming an internationally recognized research university.
