GUST Campus [1]

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.

Community Outreach [1]

At GUST we strongly believe in the importance of community outreach programs and partnerships. We believe that we have a social responsibility to give back and contribute to the development and improvement of, not only Kuwait, but the entire region as well. Our services include, but are not limited to, the following:

Partnerships with Civil Societies:
GUST has partnered with various civil societies to promote and emphasize the importance of community involvement. GUST has made available all its campus resources and facilities so that the civil societies would benefit from them in their campaigns, public lectures, and events.

Lectures, Arts, and Entertainment
The GUST calendar has numerous events and activities that are free and open to the public. Lectures on various topics include, but are not limited to, religion, politics, economics, and language arts. Moreover, the Student Union and our student clubs also organize events, carnivals, and concerts year round which students and the community can take advantage of. You can check for more over here.

Academic Scholarships
Every semester, GUST offers a limited number of internal GUST scholarships. GUST Scholarships cover full payment of tuition fees or a specific percentage of tuition fees. These scholarships are limited and, thus, highly competitive. This encourages and motivates individuals to excel academically and maintain high academic standards. For more information, you may see here.

Faculty Involvement in the Community
Many of our faculty members are involved in projects that aid the development of various sectors such as education and the economy. Moreover, they are conducting research that focuses on issues of great importance to our community and to its stability. GUST is also committed to building research centers so that students, faculty members, and the community will have access to abundant information which they would not have access to otherwise.

The Public Relations and Marketing Department focuses on community outreach. Our role is to communicate GUST’s identity in a tone of voice that resonates with our community and to make sure that how we see GUST is how everyone sees GUST. To achieve this goal, we are constantly building new partnerships that share our principles, understanding our community and responding to its needs, and innovating new modes of communication that help bolster the GUST identity.
