The primary purpose of this study was to determine the level of health awareness among university students in Jordan. The sample of the study consisted of (860) male and female students from different colleges at the Hashemite University during the second semester of the academic year 2012/2013, who were exposed to the health awareness scale. To analyze the gathered data, means, standard deviations, t-test and one-way ANOVA were calculated. Additionally, results indicated that the degree of health awareness for the Hashemite University students was low, and that there were statistically significant differences for the level of health awareness for the Hashemite University students ascribed to the variables of gender, specialization, and academic level and GPA.
