KU campus

The city campus of KU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Kuwait City has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers.
