Students living in Medina promise to have an unforgettable cultural experience! It is one of two destinations visited by Muslims on their Hajj (pilgrimage), and is one of Saudi Arabia's busiest cities. While Medina proper is reserved for Muslims, the areas surrounding the inner city are accessible to all visitors; this is where Taibah University is located. Medina is connected to the rest of the country by highway and by the international airport, which offers flights to other major cities in the region, including Cairo and Dubai.
