Campus Life 2021 - 2022

Athletics

AUBH envisions the campus to be a place of learning both in mind and body, with students participating in both individual and team sports. Sports range from basketball in our state of the art sports hall, soccer on our floodlit AstroTurf field, to other occasional activities like boxing and yoga. We continuously work towards creating an environment conducive to the health and fitness of our students.

Student Council Clubs

The student body at the university is represented through university student council that is elected every year. The student council has a leadership role to represent their fellow students and to offer recommendations to the university management on wide range of aspects that governs the academic and administrative affairs of the university. The council members also propose and organize a variety of recreational activities that could contribute to the enrichment of the extracurricular experience for students. The members introduce and manage academic or non-academic clubs in line with the demand/interests of the student body that they represent.

At AUBH we strive to keep our students in touch with the industry and provide them with opportunities to link and reflect on how the courses they are learning relate to the real world by inviting guest speakers and field trips.
