New York University’s Abu Dhabi campus takes shape

April 18, 2011
Campus opened last fall with 150 students

From The New York Times: New York University Abu Dhabi isn’t much to look at yet — a low-rise building of steel and purple, about the size of a high school, sitting in a drab part of a fast-growing city where minarets and cranes fight for air space. But it is taking shape nonetheless, opening last September with 150 students and about 45 professors. Its modest campus, surrounded by a patch of green grass, belies the scope of the ambition at work here.
