AUK Inaugurates New Student Center

Founder and Chair of the American University of Kuwait (AUK), Sheikha Dana Al-Nasser Al-Sabah, officially inaugurated the University's new Student Center yesterday in a ribbon cutting ceremony that was attended by members of the Board of Trustees. The Student Center was part of AUK's campus facility upgrade plan, which was approved in 2015. The ribbon cutting was followed by a tour of the facilities.

The new center is located on the eastern corner of the campus and offers a variety of services for students. The four-story Student Center features recreational, athletic, administrative, and academic facilities that are aimed to cater to an array of student services and activities. The first two floors of the building house an indoor multipurpose sport court, gymnasiums, a running track, and a student lounge, offices for clubs and organizations and the Division of Student Affairs, while the upper floors are dedicated to administrative offices and student service centers, such as the Counseling Center, Alumni Affairs, the Writing Center, and the Tutoring Center.

"The new building is beautifully designed, with a lot of natural light coming through. It is an attractive place for students to work and interact. The moment you walk in, you realize it has been designed to reflect the character of AUK and its student-centered culture. We have hundreds of students walking through our gates every day. We want them to arrive on campus early and stay late and enjoy learning in between," said AUK President, Tim Sullivan.

The completion of the Student Center comes as the first phase of the of the campus development plan, the second phase began in March with the construction of the new generic building, which will house state-of-the-art labs for science, engineering, art and graphic design offering cutting edge technologies and an overall enhanced learning experience.
