CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT
 

The AUK Campus is located in Salmiya on Salem Al-Mubarak Street in the middle of one of Kuwait's most vibrant neighborhoods.

AUK opened its doors in the fall of 2004 and conducts its academic activity in a newly rehabilitated and refurbished campus, which will expand and develop as needed in the coming years. The campus has spacious, modern classrooms; computer, science, and language laboratories; an administration building; a state-of-the-art library; and cafes, restaurants, shops, and recreation courts. Next to the AUK Library and central campus classrooms are beautifully designed and landscaped central courtyard and garden, which serve as venues for some student activities, as well as offer shade and respite, providing AUK students, faculty, and staff a pleasant place to enjoy, relax, and study. more...

Campus life is an integral part of a student's university experience at AUK, and helps to bring students, faculty, and staff together as one community. Students are encouraged to participate in campus events and use the resources available on campus to further enhance their educational experience at AUK.

Campus life contributes to making the time spent on campus a valuable learning experience for the students. Through both, classroom learning and extracurricular activities, AUK students learn the critical thinking skills, knowledge, and values needed to succeed effectively in today's modern societies; regional and international.
