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. This paper shed the
light on how the students within their university campus use technologies in a citizenship manner. 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.
