Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar is a small campus with a big spirit, a vibrant, engaging, challenging and caring environment for our students. At CMU-Q, we focus on developing the whole person. When students begin as freshmen, they are just discovering their talents and interests. Over their four-year journey, students grow intellectually, they learn about new paths and areas of interest, and they learn to succeed and thrive in the global workplace.
We invite you to learn more about the CMU-Q community: our enthusiastic students, accomplished faculty and supportive staff. We also invite you to explore the strong educational foundation our students receive, and the many ways they learn beyond the classroom.
We are available to answer any questions that you may have. We recommend that you subscribe to Qview, our email newsletter, and follow us on Facebook so you can see how our students are making an impact. Call us at +974 454 8400 or send us an email. We welcome you and your student to the CMU-Q family.

How can I support my university student?
Going to university is an exciting and new adventure for students, but it is also a time of transition for the entire family. Parents frequently ask how they can support their adult children during their studies. Though every family is unique, we’ve observed some common themes that might help. Encourage your child to:
- Get involved with a club–meeting new people and exploring interests is a part of the university experience
- Eat well, exercise and get enough sleep–healthy students are by far the most successful in their studies
- Ask for help with coursework–CMU-Q’s professors, teaching assistants, library and Academic Resource Center are available to help with any questions
- Ask for help if he or she is feeling overwhelmed–CMU-Q is a supportive environment, with health and wellness professionals available to guide overwhelmed students through stressful periods
If you still can’t find an answer to your question, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +974 4454 8400. We will do our best to respond as soon as possible; however, during our peak time, please understand it may take up to 48 hours for a response. Kindly note that CMU-Q’s regular office hours are Sunday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Arabia Standard Time (GMT +3 hours).
