I… look at the Asian University for Women as a bright example of South-South collaboration among developing countries… The World Bank stands ready to facilitate such South-South collaboration in support of the Asian University for Women.

The Asian University for Women is located on M.M. Ali Road in downtown Chittagong. The group of buildings contains classrooms, computer labs, science labs, dormitories, administrative offices, the library, gym, and the health center.

Our University also features various extracurricular spaces, including a cafe and venue for guest lectures.

The Campus Center: Phase 1A of the Master Plan

The first phase of the Master Plan, called the Campus Center, has begun construction. The Campus Center will be dedicated to learning spaces: wet and dry science laboratories; seminar rooms; computer labs; etc.  The Campus Center will also have a Library and Information Commons to house book collections and journal titles, regional archives, audio-visual labs, staff offices, and a student lounge and café. The University’s administrative program, the Health and Wellness Center, a 300-seat cafeteria, and, finally, a 340-seat performance auditorium will complete the building program.  These spaces will be housed in three story structures that overlook the valley, and are organized around the "campus greenway," a series of formally and informally linked courtyards and gardens.

The Government of Bangladesh, which generously donated the land for the campus, also agreed, through the Chittagong Development Authority, to cede a government road that runs through the future campus. The Deed of Agreement may be viewed here.
