Opening its doors in the Fall of 2020, AUIB began as a dream of influential individuals in Iraqi and United States business, industry, and government who want to see a world-class institution of higher learning established in Baghdad, reminiscent of the days when the capital city was an educational Mecca and flourishing capital of the Muslim world. With a grand library, palatial college buildings and student centers, state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and athletic facilities, AUIB will be a beautiful campus attracting students, faculty, and staff from throughout the world. We invite you to join us in this exciting new venture!
The AUIB campus fulfills the vision of its founders as a true American-style university campus that is efficient, environmentally responsible, beautiful, and conducive to study through its quiet, tree-lined lanes, state-of-the-art classrooms, comfortable environs, and aesthetically pleasing views. Whether a student is sitting in a classroom with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake, or sitting in the food court with friends, relaxing on a terrace with a cup of tea while enjoying the cool breezes coming off the water, or riding to class on one of the shuttle buses or water taxis, every AUIB student will quickly come to think of the campus as their campus, their home away from home. Indeed, the wonderful years spent learning and growing here will be with every graduate for life.
