The campus in Naryn is the first phase of a larger vision for the 252-hectare site. Phase I includes a 13,927m² space for 150 students featuring state-of-the-art classrooms, a library, laboratories and faculty and staff residences. Secure, modular student dormitories create comfortable living and learning spaces. UCA’s athletic facilities, including football pitches and tennis courts, are open to the public, encouraging student-community interaction. The sports dome will host indoor athletics year-round. When the final phase is complete, it will accommodate 1,200 students and span 125,000m².
UCA’s inaugural students are among the best and brightest from Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan. These young women and men earned a seat in the founding class through a transparent, competitive, merit-based and needs-blind admissions process. Their diverse backgrounds and experiences strengthen our undergraduate community.
