New Cairo Campus

Hub for Action and Research in Psychology (HARP)

HARP stands for: Hub for Action and Research in Psychology. 

It is the psychology research and teaching center, located on the second floor of the Waleed building. It’s a very useful space for the psychology community to develop knowledge through research studies, enhance psychological teaching at The American University in Cairo (AUC), and disseminate psychological knowledge through public events and written communications. 

The HARP consists of the main lab, two-way mirror rooms, and multipurpose research rooms. The main lab has several workstations, a poster printer, a regular printer, a scanner, and a smart projector. There is also a library of books and materials related to research, teaching, and career development, as well as roundtables for group projects or reading. Attached to the main lab are two adjacent small rooms separated by a two-way glass. Spaces can be reserved for conducting research studies, workshops, exam study sessions, student meetings, and activities.
