Our Student Accommodation

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 undergraduate, graduate, and language students, segregated for male and female occupants. We do not offer private and family facilities. Separate lounges and study rooms are available for male and female students.

Early registration is recommended to secure a place in CUD student accommodations as spaces are limited and are issued on a first come-first served basis.

If you're a returning student looking for student accommodation, 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.
