Living in saudi arabia

Because we want our expatriate employees to feel at home in Saudi Arabia, we offer a variety of housing opportunities to ensure a smooth transition – from comfortable homes in company-operated communities to rental allowances for housing in the local community.

Saudi Aramco-operated communities

We have supported thousands of expatriate employees and families relocating to Saudi Arabia over the last 40 years. We want our employees to feel at home and offer a variety of comfortable and family-focused housing services to ensure a smooth transition.

We operate four gated communities, each a welcoming neighborhood with people from all over the world. All four communities have their own style, with a unique appearance, character and amenities. 


Dhahran, our worldwide headquarters, has our largest housing development. The community features one of the Middle East’s most challenging golf courses along with fully equipped recreational facilities. Favorite activities there include horseback riding, hiking and biking, soccer, and rugby.
