AUC Next 100 Campus Plan
Last updated on October 1, 2020
The American University in Cairo has begun a campus planning process for the next 100 years, building on the success of the New Cairo campus which opened in 2008. The AUC Next 100 Campus Plan provides a forum to engage the AUC community in creating a vision for the future of the campus. It will establish a framework for addressing short and long term needs and aspirations for the University and its physical footprint, allowing the campus to continue its ongoing evolution and supporting the space needs of the 21st-century University community.

Tell us what you think!
Over the course of the year, we will be holding more on-campus and on-line events about the campus plan. If you have ideas about the future of the campus, click here to share your thoughts. Your ideas are important, and your voice matters!
An important component of the AUC Next 100 Campus Plan is an inclusive and participatory engagement process. This engagement began during the AUC Centennial Celebration in February 2020, with a campus conversation about the future of the University.

Campus Conversation: AUC Next 100
AUC initiated a master plan for the second phase of its New Cairo Campus development. AUC was proud to introduce Beyer Blinder Belle, who will be guiding the University through this process. Beyer Blinder Belle will share their plans for the coming year and, more importantly, will hear ideas from the AUC community about how they see the future of their University. The educational and interactive panel discussion was the first step in creating a vision for growth at AUC. The panel discussion took place on February 17, 2020, from 1:00 - 2:30 pm, Bassily Auditorium, AUC New Cairo.
