American Corner Gaza

American Corner Gaza

The American Corner in Gaza is located in Al-Azhar University in Gaza City, Gaza. The American Corner in Gaza was launched in May 2006.

Purpose of the American Corner

The goal of the American Corner is to share the story of the United States with friends, maintain an open dialogue on issues of mutual concern, and build bridges of understanding. Through the American Corner in Gaza, the Palestinian Affairs Unit in Jerusalem and the Palestinian people are able to share information, experiences, and events. The Palestinian Affairs Unit and American Corner Gaza’s very active director work closely together to develop a range of cultural, academic, and capacity-building programs to host at the American Corner. Since its opening in May 2006, we have provided a wide collection of American books, movies, and posters, as well as IT equipment, to the American Corner in Gaza.

Hours of Operation 

The American Corner maintains the same hours as Al-Azhar University: Saturday-Thursday from 8:00 to 15:00.
