Check Out the Student Parking Lot at the American University of Dubai

Say a big  hello to the student parking lot at the American University of Dubai (AUD) in in the United Arab Emirates, which as we’re informed by the all-knowing Wikipedia, “was founded in 1995 as a branch campus of American InterContinental University in Atlanta, Georgia, but turned into a private, non-sectarian institution in 2007.”

I don’t know about you, but my days of college included a lot of foot work and poky public transportation – the crew at  LeFigaro seems to agree with us. Not to sound like a whiner, but dang, dang and dang; just look at these super rides photographed by student Meeka Nasser, who himself owns a BMW 750Li, which is worlds apart from the Mirthmobile picture we have about debt-ridden students.

Nasser said the following about the cars owned by AUD students on Reddit:

“I attend the American University of Dubai, and the cars that students drive here are just ludicrous. If I was back home in Canada my car would be considered nice, but here nobody looks twice at it.

Here is a collection of pictures. These were taken in the span of a couple days, and only in 1 of the parking lots of the school, so this isn’t even close to all of the nice cars at the school. Because Cayennes and Range Rovers are a dime a dozen here, I only included a few of them in the album.

Keep in mind, almost all of the students are between 18 and 24 years old, as the graduate program is pretty tiny here. The students that drive the insanely expensive cars (Rolls Royces and Bentleys etc.) are usually local (Emirati) for those wondering.

UPDATE: Since this post has gotten so much attention I decided to take a few more pictures today. Here they are. I made sure to include Reddit’s favorite car: the BRZ. Also, since everyone keeps asking, I drive a 750Li, the one beside the BRZ in the pictures.”
