Jabriya (Arabic: الجابرية) is in an area in Hawalli Governorate in Kuwait City, Kuwait. It is a large, mainly residential area that borders Surra, Hawalli, Salmiya and Bayan. Jabriya has seen an increase of commercial activities in recent years.[when?]

On 31 December 2007, Jabriya's population was estimated to be 66,056.[1]

Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital, one of the six public hospitals in Kuwait, was built there in 1982. Other organisations within the area include the Kuwait Medical Association (KMA) and the Kuwait Central Blood Bank. Jabriya is located in the Third Electoral constituency.[2] Jabriya is divided into twelve blocks with two blocks, 1 and 3, sectioned into A and B parts. Jabriya contains more than ten schools, a large number for its size, including New English School, The English Academy, Bayan Bilingual School and Fajr Al Sabah. Jabriya has many foreign workers.

Like other parts of Kuwait City, Jabriya has traffic problems, but even more serious. Jabriya is also well known for its relative safety and diversity.

Houses in Jabriya are between 2 and 4 storeys tall. From Jabriya, one can access the Fahaheel Expressway which leads to Bayan, Salwa, Rumaithiya and Abu Halifa.

Jabriya has a subway pedestrian tunnel that passes under road no. 30 and connects it with Salmiya.[3]
