Student Accommodations

Student Accommodation Facilities

Canadian University Dubai Student Accommodations offer a clean, safe, and cost-effective living option in Dubai. Whether you're a UAE resident or an international student, living alongside your University peers can help you to integrate into campus life, and experience a unique multi-cultural environment, conducive to academic success, personal growth, and social development.

Our Accommodations are overseen by resident Officers and are available to undergraduates, graduates, and students studying English, in separate areas for male and female occupants. Private and family facilities are not available.

Early registration is recommended to secure a place in Student Accommodations as spaces are limited and will be issued on a first come first served basis. Preference is given to first year female students. If you're a returning student, please notify the Accommodations Department of your requirements at least 6 weeks before the start of a semester.

All Accommodations are self-catering and you will need to purchase your own groceries and prepare your own meals, or order meals from nearby restaurants.
