Campus Tours

A History-Rich Destination for the 21st Century

On Campus Tours

When it comes to choosing the right university, there’s nothing like visiting the campus and experiencing it for yourself. A tour of AUC’s award-winning New Cairo campus is your opportunity to engage with a diverse and robust community eager to learn, innovate and make a difference in the world. Learn interesting facts about our 260-acre, fully accessible, modern campus that weaves Egyptian urban and architectural traditions.

Get a feel for life at AUC during the one-hour tour when visiting the academic buildings, library, sports complex, University gardens and more. To go on a campus tour, you will need to register in advance by selecting the desired day and filling in the registration form. For the best experience, a maximum of 15 visitors can be accommodated per tour.

Your campus tours will be led by one of our student ambassadors. Representing the spirit and values of the institution, student ambassadors not only conduct tours, sharing their expert knowledge of AUC's campus, but also play an integral role during our community events, including commencement, orientations, commemorations and celebrations.

For interested high schools or high school students and parents, email [email protected] to arrange for a tour.

  • Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Once you are on campus, you are required to follow and abide by all AUC policies.
  • Our tours start right on time, so plan to arrive a bit early. Unfortunately, if you come late, you might end up missing your group’s tour and have to reschedule for another time.
