Buildings and Grounds
The new Mishref campus expresses GUST’s vision of higher education in Kuwait and provides the most up-to-date facilities and environment for active learning. With its special emphasis upon science and technology, GUST’s new buildings give a strong and positive impression in terms of image, functionality, accessibility, and appearance. The architecture uses modern technology to reinforce the contributions made by the Arab and Islamic World to modern civilization.
The first phase of the Mishref campus was completed in 2007 and accommodates up to 3,400 students. Later phases will expand the University to accommodate more than 5,500 students.
