UAEU Annual Report
The brand-new physical environment
sustaining the work and life of the
UAEU scholarly community has finally
come into fruition in the second half of
2011. As the Chancellor’s bold vision
unfolded, students and staff brought life
to the new technologically-advanced
campus at Maqam, in Al Ain. The final
transition of the formerly fragmented
university to unite in the new campus
has been carried out with great success.
For the first time in many years, the 2012
University Convocation will be hosted in
a single campus with adjacent facilities for
males and females.
State-of-the-Art Facilities
In the new state-of-the-art facilities all
classrooms are equipped with double
and single mounted SmartBoards, LCD
projectors, desktop computers, computer
desks, and wireless Internet access. Both
faculty and students have explored every
corner and brought the facilities to life.
While the majority of labs and classrooms
were moved in 2011, the transition is
being completed in 2011/2012 with the
transfer of all remaining labs, equipment,
faculty and staff to the new campus. The
male campus move will be completed
through the summer of 2012 with an
orderly and logistically planned transfer of
assets and people.
The safety and security enhancement
plan is been expanded in the new
facilities through the help of Khadamat.
This enhancement plan addresses the
upgrading of security measures that
supports adherence to safety regulations
by all members of the University
community. A campaign educating
students about safety regulations has
started at student housing through
various activities: fire drills and safety
measures were conducted in all 10
student residences; and the 2nd Traffic
Exhibition was held as part of the student
affairs awareness program for safety
highlighting the entrance procedures for
Al Ain commuting students and installing
the CPR system that provides increased
safety measures for private car-drop-and-
