Campus Life

Life at RUW

Royal University for Women values student involvement in extracurricular activities such as the Student Council, Student Clubs, RUW Sports Teams, special events, during national and international celebrations, as well as workshops and courses on a variety of topics.

The State-of-the-Art Campus

The university campus extends over an area of 224,000 sqm purpose-built campus which includes ample teaching, student activity and recreation spaces to ensure the best university experience for all our students.

RUW provides its students with the necessary facilities and services to ensure a safe and rewarding learning experience. In AY 2020/2021 RUW students led on the renovation of the RUW Student Centre putting on their own touches on the student zone where they can gather, dine, and relax in a friendly atmosphere. AY 2020/2021 also witnessed the launch of RUW stables for horse-riding activity, which provides the students the opportunity of practicing equestrian in their free time.

RUW Library

The library at RUW plays an important role in providing ready information resources and services to students, faculty and staff for study and research purposes. The library offers two types of resources for researching which are physical (books, newspapers etc..) and electronic platforms (E-library and E-books). The research room is equipped with 29 new computers and private study/research areas.

Health & Well-Being

At RUW, we take care of our students in every way possible. Ensuring a healthy physical and mental state is critical to academic success and therefore provisions are made for nursing facilities as well as social care to provide advice on a broad range of issues related to social adjustment, physical abuse, support to students with special needs and other student requests.

Sports Centre

RUW Sports Centre is designed to meet the student health and fitness needs. The centre is equipped with modern sports equipment, halls for fitness training, an Olympic size heated swimming pool, and a multi-purpose stadium with 600 seats for practicing various sports such as football, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and all in the privacy of a women only setting. In addition, RUW recently launched a horse-riding activity to provide an equestrian learning opportunity for its students.


RUW offers student dorms with spacious and comfortable rooms designed specifically for a student friendly environment. There is 24-hour on-site supervision through a Residence Manager (Dorm Mother) and round the clock CCTV surveillance. Students are free to come and go as their timetables permit and curfew timings are published in the Student Handbook. A full-time Resident Manager attends to the needs of the students. Kitchen facilities on each floor of the Residence are available to resident students as well.
