University of Dubai is located in one of the oldest parts of Dubai called Deira. It’s a great place to explore along the bustling corniche, through the souks, in heritage sites and creekside restaurants and bars. Deira’s heavily lived-in atmosphere and traffic-laden, bustling streets have been made more accessible by the introduction of the Metro. The heart of Deira is densely built up with a mix of old apartment blocks, while nearer the creek there are several new buildings offering modern apartments, many with spectacular views across the water. Rents are relatively low in some of the more built up areas, while the creekside dwellings cost much more. Although congested at most times Once you get past the horrible traffic and lack of parking that plagues it, Deira’s best attribute is its walkability.
University of Dubai has special discounted rates with the following hotel apartments.
