Jubail Industrial College occupies a spacious campus in the heart of Jubail Industrial City (Madinat Al-Jubail Al-Sinaiyah) on the Arabian Gulf coast. The 1,370,000 square meter area amounts to a self-contained site, containing several educational and administrative buildings, an ample residential area for students, cafeterias, a mosque, a snack bar, coffee shops, laundry shop, commissary, a library, workshops and laboratories, as well as a vast recreation area. Particular care has been taken to provide a congenial working and living environment. There are acres of green space, shaded walks, fountains and gardens. The existing infrastructure facilities have now been expanded to accommodate a sharp increase in the student population of the College.
JIC is primarily a residential college that creates an atmosphere of collegiality and camaraderie among students. Over 90 percent of students stay in the campus while some students commute from nearby towns and cities.
The College environment is very friendly and informal, and reflects warm relationships between staff and students. Over the years student enrollment has increased to over 3,600. With the increase in enrollment, the College facilities have also been developed and expanded.
The Arabian Gulf is directly adjacent to the College campus, affording a relaxing escape from the industrial landscape of the city; the long stretches of quiet shoreline are enjoyed by staff and students alike.
