115,000 square meters of stone, marble and granite were used in the campus construction — the most stone used in a single project since the Pyramids of Giza.

80% of the external walls are made of sandstone, mostly sourced from Upper Egypt, keeping rooms cool during the day and warm at night.

An international team of architects, seven firms from three countries, designed AUC New Cairo, ranked as the top green campus in Africa.

In 2009, AUC received a special award from the Urban Land Institute for the design and construction of its New Cairo campus.

Thanks to the generosity of our New Cairo campus supporters, whose names can be found all around campus.
