Abu Dhabi University inaugurates new AED16 million dorm

ABU DHABI: Abu Dhabi University has unveiled its newly completed dormitories for male students at a cost of AED16 million, thereby increasing capacity to house 315 students.

Commenting on this much needed addition, Ali Saeed Bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, Chairman of Abu Dhabi University s Executive Board, explained that the University has completed a comprehensive plan that focused on updating and enhancing its various facilities on both campuses, including the completion of new on-campus dorms that cater to the increase in the number of students enrolling at the University.

“Our student community has grown to include 6000 students enrolled in ADU s undergraduate and post-graduate programmes on both Abu Dhabi and Al Ain campuses. The start of this past academic year 2013- 2014 witnessed the University attracting 1100 new students thereby achieving a 10% increase from last year s student enrolment figures. We expect that with the inauguration of this new facility, these numbers will increase even more, especially with the start of the upcoming academic year”, he added.
