Iskan Abu Dhabi, a housing ‘one-stop shop’, which was inaugurated by HH Sheikh Khalid bin Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council, was established in line with the Abu Dhabi Government vision to enhance the quality of community life and the well-being of families, including facilitating access to housing benefits for citizens through a seamless, easy and effortless experience.

The center works as a window for all government housing services in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, and the official interface of the  ADHA's customer service. Iskan Abu Dhabi Center combines the services of ADHA and strategic partners into a 'one stop shop’ platform, serving citizens who are entitled to housing benefits in the Emirate, which contributes to reducing the time and effort for customers and completing their transactions in one place.
