The University life is not limited to just giving purely scientific subjects to achieve academic goals, but also extends to aspects of the educational process for students in terms of their behavior and social life to become citizens of complete personalities. In order to do this, the University established the Student Affairs since the establishment of the University to oversee all student services in terms of planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation within the framework of the general plan of the University.
