KAUST Red Sea Exhibit

As part of Jeddah Season, don’t miss the KAUST Red Sea exhibit in the Red Sea Mall. The exhibit showcases fascinating facts about the Red Sea and KAUST’s research work in the area, spotlighting the University’s commitment to protecting and preserving the Red Sea. Daily from June 12 to 24 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.


Take the KAUST Bus

Several KAUST off-campus buses go to Jeddah Season shuttle bus drop off points.

  • To go to Aljohara or Obhor programming, take the daily KAUST Mall of Arabia bus and the free Season-provided shuttle.
  • To go to Waterfront Programming, take the daily KAUST Red Sea mall bus and the free Season-provided shuttle.
  • To go to Historic Jeddah Programming, take the Sunday/Wednesday/Friday KAUST Albalad bus and the free Season-provided shuttle.

So that you can enjoy the festivities, the Red Sea Mall and Mall of Arabia bus schedules will be adjusted to return from Jeddah at midnight (rather than the usual 11:00 p.m.) on June 27-28, July 4-5, July 11-12 and July 18.

If these bus timetables do not work for the programs you plan to attend, we encourage you to use personal transport or book a KAUST Taxi. Uber and Careem are also being recommended by the Jeddah Season organizers and promotional discounts are available.
