Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University is abbreviated by PMU ( Arabic: جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد ). It is a private university in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It was founded by Prince Muhammad bin Fahd, former governor of the Eastern Province.

The University (accredited by the Saudi Ministry of Education but not by any international accreditation body) was inaugurated in April 2006 and was formally opened in 8 October 2008 with bachelor's degrees in 17 academic programs with some courses taught in Arabic (many are being taught in English currently). It is composed of three colleges: College of Engineering - Civil and Mechanical for males, and Interior Design for females), College of Business (both genders- but in segregated programs with most of the faculty on the male side) and College of Information Technology (both genders). Additionally, it offers an Executive EMBA program in conjunction with Maastricht School of Management, (Netherlands) As of this date, the affiliation with Maastricht has been terminated by Maastricht.

All university buildings were planned for completion in 2008, and the school planned to have a total enrollment of 5,500 by 2012. The university plant was not complete as of the summer of 2009. All administration buildings are on the men's campus and are generally off-limits to the women- faculty, staff and students. There is a small library. The men's side of the library (it is also segregated) is twice the size of the women's.

The design is putatively based on the American model for academic programs and administrative organization, and was developed in conjunction with the non-profit Texas International Education Consortium which organizes experts from the 32 public universities in Texas.

The university campus has been designed to provide facilities for a full range of academic and student services in a manner that recognizes and maintains the cultural and religious values of the Kingdom. The university design includes buildings that are shaped and located to create pleasant and inviting spaces. Plazas and covered walkways facilitate students’ movement throughout the university. The campus is symmetrically divided to provide facilities for male and female students.

The male campus houses academic facilities for male instruction in the College of Engineering, the College of Business Administration, and the College of Information Technology. It also houses facilities for male instruction in the Preparation Year Program and PMU Core Curriculum.

The university administration building is located on the male portion of the campus.

The female campus houses academic facilities for female instruction in the College of Business Administration, the College of Information Technology, and the Department of Interior Design. It also houses facilities for female instruction in the Preparation Year Program and PMU Core Curriculum.

At the campus center, male and female students have access through separate entrances to food service at the university cafeteria. They also have access through separate entrances to the information available at the PMU Learning Resources Center (LRC). Inside the LRC building, each gender has its own lobby, stacks, circulation/reference desk, and study areas. The LRC provides a central space for reading, reflection, study, and group and individual learning activities. When the university is at full operation, the LRC will accommodate a book collection of approximately 75,000 volumes.

The LRC also provides learning enrichment services in mathematics, reading, writing, and study skills to ensure students’ success of the PMU’s learning-centered approach to education. The main academic campus also contains athletic facilities. At a future date, student housing will be constructed on a nearby parcel of land.
