We visited here with friends for coffee and cakes. You park in the car park and get a small unmanned guided electric vehicle to the main university campus which has a variety of cafes and restaurants. Worth a visit for the fun of it.

A unique experience, you travel on a futuristic autonomous robotic car from the car park to the city - fun and informative. Great experience, unreal architectural concepts for cooling, power and lighting. There is a great sushi restaurant and organic grocery store inside.

A great spot to see the "future". Don't miss the driverless PRT at the basement. Roam around the silver and terra cotta buildings and the helmet shaped library building. You can't believe that this is actually a university.

Not much to see but a nice walk around the courtyards. A pleasant hour spent on a hot day, lots of places to eat as well

I was smaller than I thought but only phase 2 of 6 phases are complete. it is also a university of science and technology and seems a great place to study. we spend 2 hours there which... More

A place to visit if you are interested in sustainable building and city layout. There is little guidance about what you can and cannot do and where you can go, so it ends up being a walk around. Even so, the concept is exciting, cool and though provoking. I would not recommend this to the average tourist, who may find... More

There's only a small amount of public space to explore, but it's very attractive, with lots of interesting architectural ideas for living sustainably in this environment. We loved being able to eat lunch outside in a shady courtyard. Plus the driverless 'pods' are enormous fun! We took a 3 year old, who had a great time riding in the pods... More

So impressed by a truly inspiring vision to build world class teaching and research facilities, a city, in the midst of a desert and power it sustainably with best in class solar panels. The electric pod cars are like something out of a sci fi film. Amazing to see the start of something which will one day be so much... More
