Sustainable AUC

Sustainable AUC

AUC is supporting academic research to address climate change, but we also know it’s just as important to create a sustainable environment at home.  

We tackle sustainability from every angle; decreasing the University's carbon footprint, promoting environmental research and education, implementing recycling programs and raising public awareness.  In order to carry out these projects, AUC has established the Office of Sustainability and the Center for Applied Research on the Environment and Sustainability (CARES).

AUC has taken several measures to foster a “clean and green” campus environment from developing a sustainable trash management system and building the University’s first extensive green roof.

Bike Share

Bikie is an AUC Bike Share service in which bikes are made available for shared use to individuals on a short term basis for a price or for free. Bike shares allow people to borrow a bike from a station and return it back either to the same station or at another.

Tobacco-Free Campus

At the start of the Spring 2018 semester, AUC began a process that will transform both of our campuses, Tahrir and New Cairo, into a completely smoke-free and tobacco-free environment by the start of our centennial celebration in February 2019.
