Location[edit]

The campus of The Bridge University is in the Altabara B neighborhood, in the city of Juba, the capital of South Sudan and the largest city in that country. This location lies in the southeastern section of the city, close to the White Nile River, at the point where the road to Nimule (A43) crosses over it. The approximate coordinates of the university campus are 4° 50' 6.00"N, 31° 36' 0.00"E (Latitude: 4.83500; Longitude: 31.60000). The coordinates are approximate because the university campus does not yet show on most publicly available maps.
