Community Living

In many ways, the most distinctive element of joining the University is the unprecedented lifestyle experience it offers to all residents. Great housing and world-class recreational amenities are all part of the KAUST experience. Working just minutes from home with no commute, means more productive workdays and more time for family, hobbies and interests.

Residents of the KAUST community have many opportunities to interact socially through a variety of activities. Calendars of activities targeted to all age groups are regularly available at the Harbor community library, Harbor Sports Center and on outdoor display screens located around the campus. Karaoke bowling nights, group language lessons (such as Arabic, French and Chinese), trivia quiz nights, and after-school programs are popular examples.
