This university campus looks so cool I had to throw up a few more pictures I have taken this week. Hopefully these can communicate a hint of the size and sleek design of every building at KAUST.
The lighthouse beacon standing at the tip of a peninsula which protects KAUST's harbor club will be one of the iconic symbols of the university. Presently, the construction crews are working at a ridiculous fast pace to finish the beacon before King Abdullah and his guests come to campus to celebrate KAUST's innaugeration on the Saudi National Day, September 23rd this year.
The neighborhoods are vast and very nice. Here you can see the KAUST mosque standing out in the distance.

Much is still under construction, and hundreds of buildings (mostly housing) remain off limits until they can be finished sometime next year.
