About Us

The University of Dammam opened its doors to women and men in 1975 with two pioneering colleges, the College of Medicine and the College of Architecture.  Almost four decades later this academic institution has grown into a leading research university with 21 colleges spread throughout the Eastern Province and a student population of over 45,000.  

As a preeminent research-based institution, the University of Dammam continues to grow and develop, continually assessing and improving its curricula and expanding its academic capabilities in all disciplines, while at the same time engaging the public in addressing environmental and community challenges.
