Employee Housing

Georgetown has leased apartments and villas in various locations within Doha, Qatar. All compounds and towers are provided with 24 hour security services and include a clubhouse, a children’s playground, exercise facilities, and a swimming pool. In addition, accommodations are fully furnished and maintained to ease employees’ transition to their new homes.

All GU-Q units come with appliances such as a refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, microwave, iron, washing machine, and dryer. Bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery, and cookware are also included. GU-Q provides and covers the cost of a telephone landline, high-speed wireless internet as well as water and electricity.

Please note: floor numbering in Qatar varies from floor numbering in the States. The ground floor is considered zero, the next floor, which we consider the second floor, is called the first floor, and so on. 

Due to the frequency of live-in help in this region, villas often include a smaller room (usually with a bathroom) considered the “maid’s quarters”.

Home Contents Insurance

Most landlords provide insurance for your home but this only covers the building itself and the landlord’s contents. If you want your belongings to be insured you will need to arrange this at your own. There are few insurance companies (including AXA) who provide discount to all QF community members which can be availed.

AXA also offers vehicle and travel insurance at a preferential rate for QF community members. For more information, please click here
