NYU Abu Dhabi’s permanent campus is on Saadiyat Island within a cultural district for the city that houses Louvre Abu Dhabi and is also planned to house Guggenheim Abu Dhabi museum. Architect Rafael Viñoly, the master planner for the campus, designed it to combine elements of NYU’s Greenwich Village environment and traditional Islamic villages.
The pedestrian campus consists of state-of-the-art classrooms, library, and information technology facilities; laboratories; academic buildings; student dormitories; faculty and residential housing; and athletic and performance facilities.
The campus covers nearly 40 acres and also offers a number of public spaces, including theater and performance halls, an art gallery, conference center, and various retail offerings.
