Most computer technologies focus on end users and their problem solving activities rather than machine. This denotes an evolutionary trend even for recent technologies which include semantic web and much closer to final users.

In this paper, premium services for students and visitor in Taif University are introduced with high professionalism level. Furthermore, innovative solutions to improve

The proposed system provides two main kinds of service. The first is called Open Navigation Service, which provides a user with free tour in university buildings. The second is called Identify Way, which provide a user with start and end visiting points that may be considered university gate or building. In addition, the proposed system combines three important research topics; Semantic Web, Ontology, and XML.
