Zayed University Dubai Campus is located at the Academic City - Al Ruwayyah. The university complex is constructed on an area of (70 hectars) with total built up area 100,000m2
The design was chosen through a contest among 11 international consultants that were specialized in designing educational establishments and colleges.

Moreover, provisions will be provided for further expansion. The design concept was based on the Oasis idea, to be the heart of the project, which reflects the amazing desert environment and serves as a central gathering area for university activities. The design is very flexible for future expansion as well.
