Our Functions and Services:
At AURAK, we believe that extra-curricular learning experiences play a significant role in students’ professional and personal development by enhancing their social, leadership and organizational skills. We encourage students to become actively involved in university life by participating in extracurricular activities, student trips and student clubs and organizations. In cooperation with the Student Government Association (SGA), the Department of Student Life oversees a wide range of activities for students throughout the year, aiming to introduce students to the immense cultural diversity of the UAE. Some of the organized activities and events include Global Day, UAE National Day, international travel, visiting exhibitions, museum trips, movie nights and barbecues.
AURAK sports activities aim to develop and maintain physical fitness among all members of the University community. Students participating in these sports activities have the opportunity to develop leadership and teamwork skills. The University sports facilities include a multipurpose hall, a well-equipped gymnasium, a range of workout machines, a walking track and outdoor sports fields. Games, tournaments and friendly matches with other universities are regularly organized.
Students at AURAK are provided the opportunity to serve the community by participating in various events on-campus and off-campus. Students are encouraged to become active and positive contributors to society while experiencing the joy of helping others.
The Student Center, located in Building G, is the heart of the student community. It is a place to meet fellow students and socialize. Students can play table tennis, pool, and other indoor games.
