KAUST cases

The number of positive cases identified on campus remains at 16. We keep in touch with and monitor all our previous discharged cases and we wish them well.

Organization of chartered flights for KAUST community members

KAUST is exploring the option of chartered flights for KAUST community members who would like to fly from Jeddah to London or Dubai, departing in mid to late June. The same flights can also be utilized for those who are currently out of Kingdom and interested in returning to Jeddah. We are also exploring additional, multiple return flights from London or Dubai to Jeddah in July and August. 
If you would like to register your interest, please complete the following form by Thursday, May 28.
