AKU places great emphasis on the advancement of women in its programmes and recruits female faculty and staff from all over Pakistan and abroad. An on-campus accommodation facility has been provided to encourage out-station women to pursue a career at AKU. The Karimi, Noor and Arman Rupani Residences are named after the three families that contributed generously to the development of this residential complex. They meet the needs of professional out-station women by offering safe, secure and convenient on-campus facilities that serve as a home away from home. The facility is serviced with fully equipped rooms, laundry, pantries, common lounges, visiting lounge and a cafeteria to serve the needs of the residents.
