Al-khobar (Saudi), February 8, 2011
A major residential project is coming up at Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University (PMU) in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, which will provide accommodation to the students, faculty and staff members of the university.
Governor of Saudi eastern province and chairman of PMU board of directors Prince Mohammad bin Fahd bin Abdulaziz okayed the project and also donated 140,000 sq m of land for the building, said a statement from the university.
The housing project, which will accommodate about 2,000 students, faculty members and supporting staff, will also boast of many recreational facilities and support services. The project being built with modern architecture will have a mosque, schools, shops, gardens and parking facilities inside the campus.
Backing the project, the Governor said, 'The PMU administration must monitor this project to assure it is processed with high quality. Instruction should be given to the contractors to maintain high standard.'
PMU rector Dr Issa Al-Ansari, said, “This housing project is not generalized one. It will play crucial role to spread the PMU culture of diversity and enriching the living experience of the residents.”-TradeArabia News Service
