Discover Tangier

A port city with influences from all around the world, Tangier is one of the major cultural, economic and political hubs of the region, serving as a nexus for new ideas and cross-cultural dialogue.



Living in Tangier

Our campus features modern amenities with an authentic local sensibility. With our residence hall, an on-site café and plenty of outdoor spaces to soak up the sun, students enjoy both contemporary comfort and traditional style.


Beyond the Campus

As a relief from the rigor of the classroom, many opportunities exist beyond the serenity of the campus, including excursions to destinations in Morocco and Spain, as well as being immersed in the community you'll call home.


The UNE Morocco semester program includes an exciting itinerary of trips to nearby Moroccan destinations — plus a weekend trip to Seville, Spain. Destinations may vary from semester to semester, so please check with the Global Education Program office for the latest programming.


As part of the semester-long study abroad program, we offer a range of volunteer opportunities that help students give back to their new community and enhance their global learning. The university has formed partnerships with La Crèche Orphanage, SPANA (a local animal shelter), Croissant Rouge medical clinic, DARNA (Women & Children's Association) and other local organizations.
