Lost and Found
In case of the loss of personal belongings, students should report to DSS using the appropriate form.

At the end of each semester, unclaimed items will be disposed of at the discretion of the university.

Men’s and women’s prayer rooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. In most cases, evening lectures have a 20 minutes break for prayer, which is a part of the regular class break.
Groups and Student Organizations
Student Organizations are an integral part of the learning process at UD as they allow students to pursue personal interests and hobbies outside the classroom, learn leadership skills by handling responsibilities, and just generally have fun. The UD former clubs are now unified to operate under the umbrella of one main club called the “International Club”. This later involves student representatives from different countries and nationalities with a wide range of interests such as: sports, music, recreation, as well as cultural and social issues. Contributors to student organizations’ activities and events (volunteers/ushers/organizers) are normally selected from among those who are on good academic standing (2.25 and above).
The Department of Student Services (DSS) provides all the needed guidance to organize and register your group and identify appropriate faculty advisors. As a recognized student organization, the club will have access to funds generated from activity fees. The Emarati group, Environmental group are examples of the active student organizations. If you do not see a group that meets your interest, you can simply start your own in consultation with Head of Student Services.
