As the American Research Center in Egypt enters its 75th year, we build upon our legacy to create a stronger framework for our future. To meet our ambitious goals, ARCE has invested in our commitment to Egypt by purchasing a new headquarters in Garden City, Cairo- Cairo House.

Cairo House offers an opportunity to continue our commitment to protect and preserve Egyptian cultural heritage while fostering a global community. New lecture, program, and event spaces will allow for increased on-site programming and community engagement for local Egyptian audiences. State-of-the-art space and systems for our growing digital and physical Libraries and Archives will expand upon our commitment to research and scholarship- enabling Egyptian scholars’ physical access to unparalleled resources and worldwide digital reach to our global community. New residential quarters for visiting scholars, coupled with increased space for staff and programs, will create a vibrant living and learning community.
