On Campus Schemes


Outdoor Seating Project

The outdoor seating project is an initiative meant to create proper communal areas across the University for all community members. The purpose of this project is to also create "creative collision" points where different University stakeholders will interact and collaborate.

Bike-Share Project

To better serve the AUC community, various AUC offices are working to provide a bike-sharing service so that all stakeholders may experience campus in a novel way. This project will change how we all engage with the layout and the beauty of our campus.

Visitor Management System

Whether it is for a major production, class project or graduation, AUC is a hub for people. Some of these individuals may not have an ID card but that does not mean they should not be on campus. In an effort to support our community and security teams, we are reimagining the visitor experience at AUC.

Signage Project

Signage Project

The magnificent campus of AUC has always faced the challenge of way-finding. The new AUC signage system is meant to facilitate movement and build a better network between departments, offices, services, and students. The intention is to make the campus harmonious by having a consistent visual identity. The first phase consisted of creating a new map and representative iconography. The signage system is a result of intensive research on way-finding problem areas in AUC. These areas will now be key decision points in the new navigation system. The signage team is looking forward to launching the new project soon.

Tower Project

This incredible campus landmark was conceived as a lighthouse. It is in the process of being opened for regular visits by the AUC community for the first time since the University moved to the New Cairo campus 10 years ago. The tower’s multiple landings will also be used as an exhibition space. At the top, the views of the campus and beyond give a great perspective on AUC’s positioning within growing a greater New Cairo area.

Transformation Squad Garden

Garden Tours

The AUC garden is one of the best gardens in Cairo. The goal is to get students, faculty, administration, and guests to be more engaged with the garden, but without spoiling its essential nature as a place to relax and enjoy nature. This will be done via a combination of informative and attractive signage, new tour concepts, activations, events, and campaigns.

Campus Tours

AUC currently offers a variety of tours for VIP guests and others. These tours are led by student ambassadors, who are carefully selected in a competitive process by the Office of the Vice President for student life. In cooperation with the Vice President for Management and Transformation, the tour offerings will be expanded in the coming months, to include a wider variety of tours and a more streamlined process of marketing and organizing them.

Cafeteria Space Re-imagination

Where you eat is almost just as important as what you eat. To create a better food-related experience, the University is looking into transforming the places we eat at to create more outlets for casual, professional and creative activity.

Opportunities for Improvement and Cooperation


Cat Cooperation

The Office of Management and Transformation, along with University food services is working alongside the student union and Animal Rights Association to think of a humane and productive way to make our campus an environment where no one has to worry about cats on our campus.
