This study aimed to identify the facilities provided by Jordanian universities for deaf-mutestudents. The study was based on the descriptive approach. A questionnaire was constructed to collect data that included two fields: academic services available to Deaf-Mute students,andadministrative services available to Deaf-Mute students. The study sample consisted of (86) deaf-mutestudents in Jordanian universities. After data collection SPSS was used to analyze the results. The results showed that the academicand administrativeservices facilities provided by Jordanian universities for deaf-mutestudents were moderate. The results also indicated that there were no statistically significant differences in the responses of deaf-mutestudents about the academic and administrative facilities provided by the Jordanian universities and facilities as a whole due to the variables of gender and academic specialization.The researcher recommended the need for faculty members to rely on teaching methods suited to the requirements and needsof deaf and dumb students.
