Pocket Guide: Giza - Pyramids Cairo University Hotels

Hotels near Cairo University

Cairo University was founded in 1908 and was formerly known as the Egyptian University. Originally in central Cairo, its faculties were transferred over to its current main campus in Giza – just across the Nile from Cairo – in 1929.

If you want to stay near Cairo University, pick a hotel in one of the surrounding regions. The district of Al Duqqi is perhaps closest, though you can also easily access the university from neighbouring Giza, home to the most famous pyramids, or from one of the city-centre hotels near Tahrir Square. There are also plenty of accommodation options along the Nile with riverfront views.

A Historic Educational Institution

Cairo University’s sprawling green campus has manicured gardens and elegant honey-hued buildings, which are perfect for wandering around. Take a stroll through the grounds alongside the students to get a sense of what makes this university unique.

After Al Azhar University, Cairo University is the second oldest degree-granting university in Egypt. In contrast to its older counterpart, Cairo University was established with European-inspired principles and, as such, became a significant model for other state universities.

Learning in Egypt

Cairo University’s Medical School was one of the first to be established in the Middle East and Africa, and the Pharmacy Faculty is revered around the globe for its continuous development and original theories. Among the other important faculties are engineering and commerce and law, which is one of the university’s oldest departments.

Three Nobel Laureates have stood among Cairo University’s graduates and the institution currently educates more than 200,000 students, including nearly 7,000 international students, across 25 faculties.

Explore Attractions near Cairo University

Cairo University is within spitting distance of some of Egypt’s most celebrated sights. A short walk will take you to the old quarter, Coptic Cairo, the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, Cairo Opera House, the Hanging Church and Cairo Tower.

In neighbouring Giza, you can choose to explore on foot, take a quad bike out into the desert, ride a camel or hire a knowledgeable guide to accompany you to some of the area’s highlights, including the iconic pyramids and the Sphinx before heading back to your hotel near Cairo University.
