Overview

Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University is one of the outcomes of the attention given to the higher education of women. This attention started early, when the General Presidency for the Education of Girls established the first college for women in 1970. On Wednesday, 29/10/2008, the university was honored with the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques placing the cornerstone for the university campus. His Majesty at that time saw it best to change the name to Princess Nourah bint Abdulrahman University (PNU); Princess Nourah being the sister of the founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the late King Abdul Aziz bin Abdulrahman.
