In spite of increasing number of students with disabilities in universities, there is limited research on quality of life of these students. This study aimed to identify the quality of life level of undergraduate students with disabilities at Jordanian universities. The sample consisted of (147) students. A quality of life scale was constructed, then it was validated, and then it was administrated to the sample of the study. Results revealed that students with disabilities have a medium level of quality of life expressed in a total score of (3.48), meanwhile, the highest mean was for religious and spiritual domain (4.4) and the lowest mean was for cognitive/mental domain (2.93). Results also revealed no statistically significant differences in all domains of the scale and the total score due to disability type or severity. In addition, there are statistically significant differences in the total score due to gender in favor of females.
