Abu Dhabi University announced it will construct a 3,385-sqm female dormitory, worth $4.6m (AED17.2m), at its campus in the UAE's capital city. 

The university's student housing facilities already comprise 495 students segregated in male and female dorms. 

The new facility will include 93 rooms, a multi-purpose hall, a gym, reading rooms, and various service rooms. 

Ali Saeed bin Harmal Al Dhaheri, chairman of Abu Dhabi University’s executive board, said: "The new on-campus dormitories are a valuable enhancement to our international educational environment and will complement the University’s pursuit of international accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)." 

"The university has also started implementing a comprehensive plan to upgrade and enhance its campus infrastructure, which includes the construction of new residential facilities for several members of faculty and staff," he added.
