The emirate's first fully integrated, purpose-built student housing community in Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) will be complete by 2020. However, the urban styled student community will cost anything from Dh16,000 to Dh30,000 per semester.

The Myriad Dubai will provide over 1,820 multi-sized, fully-furnished rooms in seven buildings within walking distance from major universities in Dubai, announced officials on Monday. There will be no dorms and students will be provided private accommodation. The Myriad is open for undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students.

With construction expected to commence shortly, officials stated that The Myriad would be the largest purpose-built, professionally managed student housing property in the UAE on a single plot. Speaking to the media on Monday, Mohammad Abdullah, managing director of Dubai Knowledge Park and Dubai International Academic City, announced the project and provided details of an array of services to be made available on-site.
