The Deanship of Students Affairs was established at the beginning of the academic year 1991-1992 for the full supervision in relation to the affairs of the students during their university studies. The Deanship consists of a group of units that deal with the affairs of students and provides them with services that create an appropriate academic atmosphere. It raises a number of quarterly programs and various activities that aim to activate students' cultural awareness and expand their knowledge. Such activities would help the students to collect useful knowledge and experience needed to make them familiar with social participation, and to emphasize their sense of belonging to their nation and their homeland. Such activities also give the students a chance to engage in activities compatible with their interests and talents, under the official umbrella of the university enabling them to participate within and outside the university.
The philosophy of the Deanship of Students Affairs is to pay attention to the students in all aspects, and to follow-up their needs regarding services, and to help them to overcome the problems they face. It also aims to create an atmosphere of mutual trust between the students and the university administration. So, the Deanship of Students Affairs is the link between them, as working hard to achieve communication between the students and the development of team spirit and teamwork, and the provision of facilities necessary for the realization of an integrated student life. The Deanship is seeking always through the Department of Activities towards achieving the development and innovation in the quality of activities to keep pace with that seen in the fields of culture and creativity in a broad sense following the evolution and diversity of cultural, artistic and sports fields, under the supervision of a highly qualified group.
The Deanship offers services through its divisions by communicating with the students and their families in order to provide adequate housing in addition to the provision of psychological and social counseling, health care, and health insurance.
The Deanship also cares about the graduates through the provision of communication with them and an alumni club, in addition to the Office of the Follow-up of Graduates and the Office to follow the Affairs of International Students. The Deanship building includes the deanship office and the King Abdullah II Fund for Guidance and Vocational Qualification.
