Ideally located, beautifully planned, nicely constructed, reasonably well maintained. It is a calm and serene place. Ideal place for studies---away from the maddening crowds.

QAU used to be a great place to visit but the recent urbanization of its surroundings has defeated the purpose of going to QAU for a few moment of peace and tranquility.

My fiance recently took me to this University. This is where he studied and spent a good deal of time. It was a very beautiful campus. There are signs posted very well so it was very easy to find our way around. I really enjoyed seeing the campus and coming to view it as he once did.
