Ubuntu server will not come with any desktop. You will have to install it. If you prefer Gnome you could install ubuntu-desktop. If you prefer KDE you could install kde-desktop from the package manager.

sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop

or

sudo apt-get install kde-desktop

I hate to run desktop on servers but it is a personal preference. If you just want to administer the server, install webmin instead of complete desktop.
