AUM is located in Bormla, also known as Cospicua, one of Malta’s iconic Three Cities. The area is rich in culture, varied history and restaurants and cafés by the beautiful waterfront. Our campus, originally designed by William Scamp, was used during World War II as a British naval base. Heavily bombed during this period, the building was left in ruins for many years. The restoration process included efforts to keep the historic preservation of artefacts within the building.
