The Deanship of Student Affairs is one of the oldest deanships at the university. It is one of the fixed pillars of Sultan Qaboos University, where it was established to be an essential edifice that is closely linked to our students. The Deanship programs and various services contribute effectively to realizing the university's vision and mission of developing our students' abilities and helping them overcome any obstacles to their academic careers.


In addition to many social services, religious, cultural, and sports activities that serve university students' lives outside the classrooms, students invest their most profound potential to gain new skills that benefit them. They are entitled to all the comforts and psychological stability that will help them move forward successfully.


The Assistant Deans for Social Services office provides its students services through the departments it oversees, namely:

Department of Nutrition Services

Housing Services

Department of Social Welfare Services

Department of Social Activities and Community Service


All these departments are supervised by a select group of qualified professionals who can deal with students and showcase their skills, creativity, and talents to enhance the students' social consciousness, global awareness, and cultural sensitivity. These abilities allow them to solve problems and design solutions to improve individuals' quality of life and the general well-being of our Omani community.
