This Is What a College Parking Lot Looks Like in Dubai

If you love cars, this post is going to be eye-candy for you. We have a bunch of pictures taken by a student at a parking lot of the American University of Dubai. Reddit user Squirrelnelius, real name Meeka Nasser, put up pictures of amazing cars owned by students attending the learning institution in the Middle East.

I know Dubai is chock-full of rich folk, but just seeing all these cars parked in one place is pretty unbelievable. You can spot a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari, a Bentley Continental GT, a chrome red Mercedes among hundreds of other luxury vehicles. In fact, you can see a poor Maserati left around a corner without a parking spot. Nasser said that because Cayennes and Range Rovers are a dime-a-dozen, he only included a few of them in the album.

Nasser is a student at the American University. His aim was to show the world the array of models on display at his school. “The cars that the students drive here are just ludicrous,” he said. “If I was back home in Canada, my car would be considered nice, but here nobody looks twice at it.”

Nasser said he clicked all the photographs in just two days, and only in one of the parking lots at his school. “So this isn’t even close to all of the nice cars at the school,” he pointed out.

“Keep in mind, almost all of the students are between 18 and 24 years old, as the graduate program is pretty tiny here,” said Nasser. “The students that drive the insanely expensive cars are usually local, for those wondering.” I don’t know if I should be calling these kids lucky or spoiled!

The American University of Dubai is a private educational institution, founded in 1995. It offers undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as a Certificate in Middle Eastern Studies. But you don’t want to know that. You want to ogle at the cars, I know. I’ll leave you to it!

    Talk about conspicuous consumption.

    Only the poor in Dubai drive their own cars to university. I fly in on my helicopter from my yacht’s helipad when the schedule fits me. Otherwise, the professors are told to be on standby until I wake up from my nap. I also have hot virgin secretaries to take notes for me.

    Why do you, price, fly to college on helicopter, if you could afford to hire all the professors to teach you at home? It’s because you crave the crowd to show off your riches.
