Residential Halls

On-campus housing (Dorms) is the most convenient place for students to live. At AUS, students live on campus and enjoy being close to the academic buildings, library, food court and Sports Complex. AUS has eight men's and four women's dormitory buildings, supervised by staff on a 24/7 basis. The living environment is has a balanced mix of social and academic activities.

AUS highly recommends that new students reside on campus during their first year in order to facilitate the transition into university life in a supportive environment. To ensure that all students, regardless of family financial circumstances, have the possibility to live on campus, the university provides new first-time students with accommodation in a shared room for AED 2,000 per semester for their first two semesters at AUS.

Students who choose to live on campus after their first year or to live in other types of accommodation will be charged standard rates (

We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to live on campus so that you can take full advantage of the academic and extracurricular activities that make AUS one of the top universities.
