Discovery Square


Discovery Sq

Discovery Square is a space at the very heart of our community; it is like the town square of KAUST. It is the venue for countless outdoor community events as well as the KAUST Cinema and Theater. You will enjoy comfortable seating, covered areas, trees, flowers, fountains, and modern art.

Discovery Square is where you will find The Community Hub - the hub of or community and its development team. The square has a Tamimi Minimarket for most of your household goods. You will find many retail outlets, including: Giordano, Matjar, SNB Bank, and Saud Pharmacy. It also has many famous food and beverage brands, including: KFC, Burger King, Baskin Robbins, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, as well as local brands, such as Cuisine Halwani, Great Wall Bistro, Tawabil, and Ya Hala. If you need a Post Office or ​mail and courier services you will find them at the corner of Discovery Square, opposite the mosque.

On any Thursday or Friday night Discovery Square is alive with a friendly, family vibe and is a great meeting place for all community members anytime. Be sure to check out Souk Walk just a few steps away from Discovery Square. There you will find more retail outlets, such as Greens grocery, Banaweer ​​Bike Shop, and Kanoo Travel Agent.
