Campus life

The Canadian University Dubai campus is steps away from Sheikh Zayed Road, the main thoroughfare of downtown Dubai and the hub of the financial district. The Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, and many of Dubai's premier attractions surround our facilities, and the Financial Centre metro station is walking distance from the University campus, ensuring an easy commute. There are also many selections of shops and restaurants nearby.

The Canadian University Dubai campus is an architecturally unique building. Our four Halls are surrounded by lush vegetation, providing the perfect backdrop in any of our courtyards for quiet conversation or studying.

We offer a number of sports activities to all students and encourage them to take an active role in our sports development.

“Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy future”

At the Canadian University Dubai we recognise the importance of sports to student life. Apart from having a balanced diet, active participation in sports will assist in maintaining our health; if we do not exercise regularly our bodies become easy targets for illness and disease.

Sports teach us many other benefits too – such as team work, discipline, sportsmanship, cooperation, dedication and decision making.
