Butaro Academic Campus Construction Timelapse

On January 25, UGHE officially opened the first phase of its Butaro Academic Campus. Located 80 miles north of Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali, and embedded in a rural primary health care system, the design and location of UGHE’s campus will offer students diverse educational opportunities in both clinical and delivery settings.

Roughly 1,000 masons, carpenters, electricians, and plumbers built the hilltop campus in two years, using many regionally-sourced building materials.
