Living at KAUST

KAUST supports the relocation of its faculty and staff members as well as their families to its campus. KAUST HR will take care of the needs of all relocating KAUST employees, from the moment they accept an offer until they and their families are safely settled in their new accommodation.

As a new hire, you will be supported by an assigned HR Coordinator, who will make the whole process as smooth as possible. Relocation activities such as processing visa applications, airline bookings, shipping personal effects (for eligible employees), will be coordinated by the HR Coordinator, who will also support any individual needs you may have.

KAUST has set up a dedicated private website where you can check on the status of your move at any time, update your details, post inquiries, or communicate directly with your HR Coordinator.

We look forward to welcoming you to KAUST.


KAUST provides full support and attractive campus facilities to help you and your dependents make a smooth transition to your new life.
