The new ALU campus is located in Bumbogo in the Kigali Innovation City, which is poised to become the centre of excellence in education in Africa.
The campus has 3 buildings with 2 floors each: Social Commons, Enterprise Commons and Learning Commons joined by a covered pathway called “Collab Street”. With 6,500 sqm built-area, the campus has 21 classrooms and pods distributed across the campus for peer and self work.

The structure aligns with the natural slope of the landscape allowing access on every floor outdoor seating.  The entire campus is designed with energy efficiency in mind which is why we have wide open spaces that leverage natural lighting and ventilation.
