The faculty lounge is located in the Campus Center, room 1001. There are two accesses, one next to the campus stationery shop (with elevator and staircase), and the other through a back staircase by the AUC Library.

The lounge is open from 8 am to 5 pm, Sunday to Thursday. It is closed on Fridays, Saturdays, and official holidays.

  • Library

A collection of fiction and non-fiction books written in or translated into English is available in the faculty lounge for faculty members' use. These books are mostly faculty lounge library sub-committee recommendations and award-winning titles. A small collection of Arabic authors translated into English is shelved separately. Donated books from faculty members are also accepted. To access the regularly updated list of titles, check the library at the faculty lounge.

A maximum of two books may be borrowed for up to one month only. There are check-out cards on the front cover of each book. The library is run on the honor system, and each borrower is responsible for checking books in and out and for following the borrowing procedure.
