The UOP has always had since its establishment a long-standing heritage of its main premise that the student is the center of the entire teaching learning process. Hence, the UOP has always lived up to its principle of working towards the development of a well-rounded and composed students' personality coupled with the growth of skills acquisition, innovative thinking and creativity. The vision and outlook of the UOP have been associated with the specialized research centers such as the center for pharmaceutical studies; thus culminating in the students' extra-curricular activities and hobbies including sports activities as one can witness the available stadium and gyms and specialized trainers for sports in addition to providing restaurants and indoor kiosks.
The university was interested in providing the highest levels of comfort and luxury for students on campus, through the development of a green environment, and building fountains through the clean energy of the university, and the provision of transportation to and from the university campus through a network of modern, comfortable and affordable buses at reasonable cost.

All of this is based on the university administrators' vision that seeks to enhance our education, research and service activities in order for the university to remain the appropriate context and the ideal choice for students and professors in Jordan and the Arab countries context.
