Greatness in Progress


AUC Coin

For the first time in the region, a cashless community is forming within the grounds of The American University in Cairo, paving the road for others to follow. AUC again is taking a leading innovative step transforming the campus into a cashless one. Over 5,000 undergraduate students across the AUC will use their IDs as their mode of payment for all on-campus purchases. For more information about the AUC Coin, click here.

AUC Mobile App

The AUC Mobile application aims to serve main stakeholders: students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The aim of the application is to increase communication and engagement. It is designed to be an intuitive and easy-to-use platform to encourage stakeholders to use every day. The main objective is to enhance the students’ life experience on and off campus by giving access to multiple features and services. The application should help integrate academic and non-academic events and activities beyond the classroom and immerse students in the community.

Banner Cloud Update

Banner is one of our main institutional assets when it comes to providing direct services to all University stakeholders, both present and future. It provides the main interface for software applications for many administrative offices at AUC. We are currently in the process of upgrading this software to better serve our community. As such, our priorities are to ensure better system availability through infrastructure upgrades (physical and virtual) and develop tools to integrate new projects into our University’s software.

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.
