King Saud University prepares 4,500 parking spots for female students

Published: Updated:

King Saud University's Rector, Badran al-Omar, has confirmed that the university is preparing 4,500 parking slots for female students and faculty members after a royal decree issued last week removed the ban on women drivers in the kingdom.

The lifting of the ban will be implemented in June 2018.

Omar shared this news through his twitter account on Friday evening saying: “The Supreme Court’s decision to allow women to drive will help them achieve substantial material gains while also expanding their participation in the labor market.”

He then continued saying that the university city dedicated to female students, is “ready to implement the new decree through establishing 4,500 parking slots for female students and faculty.”

Females students warmly welcomed the principal’s tweets. They also expressed how proud they are to be part of such a prestigious university, which has always been a leader and pioneer, and keen to keep up with social developments.
