The study aimed to identify to what extent university students are contributed to volunteering work. Therefore, this study focused on the students of Jouf University & University of Hail. The analytical descriptive methodology was utilized in this study and questionnaires as an instrument to collect data. The instrument consisted of 45 sentences divided into four fields, which are cultural & social, educational, health & environmental, and national & security. The random sample was used to select the sample of the study. It was 850 students, which included 444 students from Jouf University and 406 students from University of Hail. The findings revealed that the contribution of students in both universities to volunteering work was low. For Jouf University, the health & environmental field had the highest degree while the educational field was the lowest. On the other hand, the response to the cultural & social field was the highest for Hail's students while the national & security field had the lowest response. In addition, the results showed that there were no statistically significant differences between students in both universities according to the study variables (major, educational level, and gender) for all fields. However, there was statistically significant differences between Jouf's students and Hail's students in favor of Jouf's students. The study recommendations were to spread volunteering culture among students through conferences and workshops, courses, and awareness of the importance of volunteering work and its positive effect on both the society and students.
