Kuwait

The Gust campus is located in the prime residential area of Mishrif, and is one of the premier private university campuses in Kuwait, providing the most up-to-date facilities and environment for active learning, with a special emphasis on science and technology. The campus is situated on 100,000 square meters of a 150,000 square meters site, with a gross built up area of 35,000 square meters and a footprint area of 15,000 square meters. The first phase of the campus was completed in 2008 and accommodates up to 3,400 students and 200 staff.

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. The university library, learning resources and administration functions are housed in a circular building, whilst the 6 classroom wings are attached to the concourse at all three levels. To the right of the concourse is a health and fitness center, and to the left the conference center. An open amphitheatre provides a dramatic setting for theatrical and other performances while open sports facilities include a football field and tennis courts. The three storey concourse runs north-south and east-west, and is accessed from the two parking areas and central VIP entrance. It provides covered access to all academic and social activities.
