Qatar University (QU) will carry out infrastructure works and build other facilities worth QR5 billion ($1.373 billion) over the next 10 years, a report said.

About QR500 million ($137.31 million) will be spent every year, a senior official was quoted as saying in The Peninsula Qatar report.

Engineer Ibrahim Yousuf Al Fakhroo, director of capital projects affairs department at the university, said in an interview with Qatar News Agency that QU, which currently has over 17,000 students, that the projects to be implemented this year and over the next three years are estimated at about QR3 billion ($823.84 million).

This year, QU will open many key projects including male and female student housing, which includes 668 rooms accommodating about 1,000 students.

The university is preparing this year to open residential apartments for faculty members visiting the campus. The project includes 208 apartments and a club for university employees and students.

Al Fakhroo added that the university will inaugurate the College of Pharmacy Building (male and female) this year, apart from a multi-storey parking building that can accommodate 2,000 cars.

In the next few months, a tender for the establishment of the Sports and Events Building will be launched, he said. The building will include various Olympic stadiums for the university's students that can also be used for the competitions hosted by the country, Eng Al Fakhroo said.
