The Times Higher Education  MENA Universities Summit 2020 will be held at NYU Abu Dhabi, UAE in March 2020.

NYU Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island campus is a pedestrian campus that combines traditional and modern architectural elements to reflect the university’s three identities: Abu Dhabi, New York, and the world. Designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, the campus covers nearly 40 acres and promotes interaction between living, learning, research and teaching, as well as between faculty, students and staff.
