Campus resources and services

Housing and accommodation

Until the the university housing facility is established, the student affairs department will provide assistance to students seeking accommodation in neighborhoods surrounding the university campus. Guidance will be provided, especially to students from governorates outside of greater Cairo, to find accommodation at specially negotiated prices. 


A bus service is available at the university that serves faculty, students and staff. There are meeting points in several districts of Cairo for transportation to and from the university according to a specific timetable. To join this service you need to fill in a request form at the student service center. The detailed bus schedule will be available on our website.

Parking policy

  • The university map demonstrates parking zones with numbered parking lots designated for faculty, staff, undergraduates and graduates.
  • Members of the university community who need to park on campus may obtain a permit from the university's transportation and parking services department.
  • The university reserves the right to fine or remove vehicles parked on university property that are in violation of its parking policy. All citations and expenses related to violations, including vehicles with university parking permits, are the sole responsibility of the vehicle owner.


Athletics and sports facilities

Developing sports and recreational programs that highlight core sportsmanship ethics and values is key to completing the student experience at the University of Science and Technology. The university will foster different recreational sports with the aim of developing students' tolerance to individual differences. The university will coordinate the use of its current campus facilities for sports activities until relocation to our new campus.
