Student Life

Campus and Facilities

BUB is located in a new, state of the art, university campus housed in a purpose-built ten-storey building in the Saar area of Bahrain. The campus includes a 424-seater auditorium, a high-tech learning resource centre, contemporary recreational and work spaces as well as more than fifty classrooms, workshops and laboratories equipped with leading-edge technology.

The campus has been designed around the distinctive learning philosophy of BUB, which emphasises active, student-centred and collaborative learning in an up-to-the-minute technology-rich environment. The campus is located adjacent to Bahrain’s newest mall, which offers students a wide range of additional facilities, including a hyper-market, 13-screen cinema complex and a wide range of retail outlets, cafes, restaurants and recreational facilities.

The Student Voice

BUB takes feedback from our students very seriously and we believe that the student voice should have regular input into the way we manage the University. At BUB we will regularly seek your opinions of the quality of teaching you receive and on the facilities we provide. We are committed to responding to this feedback and will do so in a systematic and open way.

The Student Council is a key body within the University with officers and representatives elected by the student body. The Student Council meets regularly with the University’s senior management team and members of the Council sit on key University Committees such as the Academic Board and the Joint Boards of Study which has representatives from both BUB and the University of Salford.
