DAUST campus

DAUST Campus

DAUST campus is located in Somone, Thies. The campus houses DAUST administrative units, student residential hall, classes, and research labs. Somone is a beautiful coastal area known for its natural beauty, bird reserves, and best stretch of beach anywhere in Senegal. The city of Somone is friendly and fun; it has some of the most beautiful resorts in the country. DAUST campus is less than 100 ft from the beach and close to the famous Royal Decameron Baobab Hotel.
