The Student Activity Center and the School of Architecture Building are major additions to the UAE University campus in Al Ain. The two facilities are connected by a courtyard of landscaped walkways and parking. They complement each other with resources including classrooms and lecture halls, as well as new cafeterias and study areas for students and teachers. Common spaces flow from a central atrium, which allows access to both the Student Activity Center and the School of Architecture. The extensive, light and airy public spaces encourage interaction between students and teachers.
