Getting to campus

Whether you are living at home or in student accommodation, you will want to plan how you will travel to campus each day. Our campus is well-connected for travel in Dubai and the surrounding areas.

Our campus is located in the Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) zone, which is located approximately 20km from Dubai city centre and just 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport.

DIAC

Driving

Our campus is centrally located in Building 2 of DIAC, just a short walk from the free car parks available for students. DIAC is located on Dubai International Academic City Road between Al Ain and Dubai Hatta Roads, making it accessible from all major road networks. Visit the DIAC website  for detailed driving instructions depending on which direction you will be travelling from.

Shuttle buses

Both student residences DSOA and Uninest provide shuttle buses to and from the DIAC zone for their residents. You will need to speak to your accommodation provider for information about timings and registration.

The University will also be running shuttle buses to and from Dubai from the start of the academic year. The routes are expected to cover a range of destinations in Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi. Routes will be planned closer to the start of the academic year. You can assist us by letting us know as early as you can that you would like to use the transport. Please email dubai@contacts.bham.ac.uk to register your interest.
