Qatar Foundation has curtailed certain activities and closed many of its public places and facilities at Education City until further notice, to help slow infection and transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Qatar and contribute to safeguarding public health, which is of paramount importance to us.

The measures we have taken include:

  • Multaqa (Education City Student Center) is closed to the public. This includes all shops and food and beverage facilities within the center.
  • The Minaretein building is fully closed to the public, including the Education City Mosque.
  • Qatar National Library is closed to the public. We encourage everyone to access the QNL Online Resources which remain fully accessible.
  • All other library facilities across Education City are closed to the public.
  • Oxygen Park is closed to the public.
  • Services on the Education City Tram are suspended until further notice.
  • All sports and community activities and programs at Education City, including those run in cooperation with external third parties such as F45, are suspended.
  • Al Shaqab is closed to the public.
  • QF recreation facilities, including the QF Recreation Centre and Education City Club House, are closed.
  • Education City Golf Club is not currently offering group sessions. Individual sessions can be scheduled as normal.

People are strongly encouraged to check for updates at before traveling to Education City to participate in activities or visit its public facilities and spaces.

QF will continue to operate its core business functions, with many being performed remotely. The investments that we have made in innovative work practices and digital infrastructure have enabled us to be prepared for a situation like this. The steps we are taking ensure QF will continue to operate while also reflecting the fact that protecting the health of our community and the wider public is our top priority. Students will be continuing classes at QF schools using online learning platforms. All QF business travel arrangements, and QF events, have been cancelled until further notice.
