The paper investigates the technology usage as a digital citizenship indicator among undergraduate English language students at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University (AHU) in Jordan. Digital citizenship with its nine elements: Etiquette, Communication, Education, Access, Commerce, Responsibility, Rights, Safety, and Security are connected to all life aspects. It is hard to ignore the increasing misuse phenomenon of the emerging technologies.

A measurement tool worked as a test to reveal students technology usage as an indicator of their digital citizenship. Results of the study revealed that students do not properly use technologies as a digital citizenship indicator. The study included recommendations to overcome technology usage within university campus.
