About Our Campus
The ALA Campus is a beautiful space on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Since taking occupation 10 years ago and with the generous support of our donors purchasing the property, we’ve been investing heavily. We engaged with a design team with the aim of designing a residential space to house students and faculty as well as a Library for the Future of Africa.
We now have a living document called the ALA’s Campus Master Plan, which is a process and framework for what ALA will be doing with our learning space over the next 20 years and beyond.
In 2015, we broke ground on the first big project – The newly constructed residential wings include that form part of the new Nelson Mandela Residence with 48 Student dorm room, 4 Faculty family home, 10 Faculty apartments, 2 Large courtyards, 2 Laundry facilities, 4 Shared lounges and 2 Sick bays!
In 2016 we began building The Pardee Learning Commons, the second construction project on campus, which will redesign and redefine our learning spaces, positioning ALA as a model for 21st century teaching and learning.
