King Abdulaziz University (KAU)provides an ample number of student housing units within or around the outskirts of its campus. Housing is available to all students whose families reside outside of Jeddah (including those who are on scholarships). This type of student benefit is also available if a local student’s family circumstances necessitate KAU housing assistance.

Supervision of students in KAU dormitories, and the general management of these units is the responsibility of well-trained and qualified student resident life personnel. These resident supervisors are helped by assistant resident supervisors who take over supervision duties, includingemergency response during evening and night periods. New students should contact the Deanship of Student Affairs to obtain more information about KAU student housing assistance eligibility.
