Qatar University Library in Doha, Qatar

Academic libraries / Completed 2012

Room for expansion

Ever since its establishment in 1973, Qatar University has given education a strong position in the country’s expansion. It has been a successful mission from its first college with some 150 students to todays with seven colleges and 8,000 students. As the university expands, so the demands on the library increase. At the beginning of 2012 a new, larger library opened its doors to students, researchers and teachers.


The library plays an important role in supporting the high academic standards of the university. This high standard is reflected in the design and function of the shelving. The quality and finish is high, both for the physical environment, as well as for the technical infrastructure.
