KU has obtained its license in 2001, yet it started student intake only in 2004 on a temporary campus that was located in Manama. It is in July 2013 when the University moved to its new (owned) permanent campus in Riffa (Al-Hajiyat), Bahrain. The new campus provides a fresh and promising learning environment and study facilities. In 2016, the University has embarked on a major expansion at the campus which includes the development of a new six-storey Academic Building and Extension of Car Parks.
The university began in 2004 with approximately 67 students and has rapidly grown since then to reach more than 1800 alumni by the end of 2015 from the different Colleges (Law, Arts, Business Administration, IT, & Architectural Engineering & Design).
Capitalizing on years of progressive achievements, KU is proud of gaining confidence recognition from the Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training (QAAET) for almost all of its programs. The university continues to prove its commitment not only by meeting the required standards set by the Higher Education Council (HEC) & QAAET but rather aspires to exceed them and contribute towards the overall development of Bahrain and the Region.
