New York University Abu Dhabi where passion and learning combine

The NYU Abu Dhabi campus is located on Saadiyat Island, a five-minute drive from the beach and Saadiyat Cultural District. Fusing traditional and modern architectural elements, the pedestrianised campus, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, reflects the university’s three identities: Abu Dhabi, New York and the rest of the world. The campus is spread over 40 acres and is not only an outstanding educational facility, but also engages with the wider community in Abu Dhabi through a year-round calendar of art exhibitions and performance events, as well as education and outreach programmes aimed at all ages.
