Strategically located at the heart of Cairo’s western suburbs, the university is being established on an area of 167,000 square meters in PHD’s flagship project Badya, a high-end and sustainable full-fledged city. Badya University is expected to house eight academic faculties, namely Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Engineering, Fine Arts, Computer Science, Business & Economics, and an eighth faculty yet to be announced, with a total capacity of around 12,500 students.
