Campus Life

360 Degree Student Experience
“Play is the highest form of research – Albert Einstein

At AUBH, we understand that life outside of study is as important as academic performance. It is in this sense that we aim to provide our students with a well-rounded university experience that is on a par with experiences abroad. Our 75,000 sqm Riffa campus is alive with a host of leisure and extra-curricular activities to create unique spaces for students, faculty and staff to interact, learn and grow as individuals.

Our stunning campus was designed by US-based architects Ayers Saint Gross (ASG), who are specialists in creating university spaces which lend themselves to creativity through open areas, ease of flow and natural light. The campus aesthetic was designed to enhance interaction and collaboration between students, faculty and staff, providing a distinctive educational venue unique to the Middle East.

Campus Features:

The campus is a joy to study and work in, with our central Academic Quad consisting of three-floor academic buildings, purpose-built to house multimedia and chemistry labs and innovative study technologies such as Clevertouch classroom screens for instant device sharing and note saving.

Clubs & Societies

Overseen by the AUBH Student Council, students have access to a plethora of clubs and societies catering to every interest, from soccer to photography. The clubs and societies operate with the ethos of collaboration amongst students and the wider AUBH community. In keeping with our approach to education, students are free to conceive their own ideas for campus activities and events, to mutually thrive in a self-starting environment.

Medical Services

Health and well-being is our primary concern for students, particularly those living away from their home countries who may require additional pastoral care. Our on-campus clinic offers healthcare advice and basic first aid, with an open-door policy from our experienced on-site healthcare practitioners. In addition, the renowned Awali and American Mission Hospitals are less than 5km away from our campus, both offering A&E services, plus all specialties from a team of international doctors and nurses. Many pharmacies are situated within a short drive from the campus, with reputable ones in the Riffa area including Boots, Nasser and Bahrain Pharmacy.
