​​​Office of Student Life


The Student Life office serves the extracurricular needs of the graduate students of the University. Meeting these needs may take the form of offering a mid-week social to coordinating visits of cultural and historical sites within the Kingdom. Student Life also offers the opportunity for individuals to create and participate in student groups, student chapters, and professional associations that enhance their studies and offer them leadership opportunities. In offering our graduate students a wide variety of recreational events and services, the office hopes to inspire their futures, foster their senses of learning and engagement, and promote a distinct sense of 'community' to augment their academic life.
