10 Facts about AUC New Cairo

In November 2018, AUC celebrated the 10th anniversary of its New Cairo campus. 

AUC Celebrates 10 Years in New Cairo

In 2018, AUC opened its New Cairo campus. We commemorate this anniversary by looking back at shots of the campus then and now.


The New Cairo Campus was built to the highest international standards, while drawing from a number of cultural traditions reflective of our identity as Egypt’s global University. As we celebrate a remarkable 10 years since our journey from Tahrir Square, we are proud of all we have accomplished here, and we look forward to another decade of growth, service and institutional excellence. 

Francis J. Ricciardone,
President of AUC, 2016 - 2021

Few universities in the world have the chance to do what AUC is now doing. We are building an entirely new campus that began not long ago with a vision and a blank sheet of paper.

David Arnold
President of AUC 2003 - 2010

We will look back at the end of this decade, proud to have built this new campus and confident that future generations of Egyptians and Americans will be well served by what we have done.

John D. Gerhart
