Community Life brings together the key services and teams that serve our KAUST community. By working together with many teams across KAUST, it is our goal to nurture a vibrant landscape to live, work and play.

Our community members represent 112 nationalities, making KAUST a truly international destination. Our primary focus is to foster a community that enables every member to feel a sense of belonging and connectedness.

I encourage every single one of you to not only enjoy our beautiful landscape and work-life balanced environment, but also to get engaged in our community. Share your culture with others; get involved in a community project or club; participate in sports and recreational programs; or volunteer your skills to support your fellow community members and those living in our neighboring towns.

I personally have found the energy and enthusiasm across the community to be very inspiring. Whether it’s a Community Club passionate about organizing specialized programs, a teenager taking on their first internship experience, or a group of people that want to volunteer their time to put together an event to support their particular interests; the willingness to engage has been remarkable.

Our community is driven by its dynamic members! For more information on how to get engaged, or if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to make KAUST an even better place to live, email our team at
