Students at the University of Gibraltar will soon enjoy an all-new and bespoke social, collaborative space thanks to a generous donation from the Alwani Foundation.
Named The Kishin Alwani Student Common Room, it is designed to enrich the student experience by providing a more informal place where students can build connections and collaborate with ease. As the University grows over the term of its 5-year strategic plan, bespoke student social spaces like this one will be designated at the Campus, and networking events will be hosted to assist students to build connections across the student body and meet locally based alumni.
Rather fittingly, the Common Room design and layout is a true collaboration between all involved with University of Gibraltar staff members, The Kishin Alwani Foundation, and local interior design companies developing the concept. The space will have an informal feel and it will be uniquely and unmistakably Gibraltarian, with a large mural painted by local artist Paul Cosquieri featuring prominently in the pace. On behalf of the Foundation, Mr Alwani said:
“We are delighted to make this contribution to Gibraltar’s new University. We hope the Common Room will benefit many students in the years ahead and become one of the preferred meeting venues.”
