1. The Legal Unit.
The student living in the dormitory is subject to two types of regulations:

It is based on the provisions of section (2) of Article (37) of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research Act No. 40 of 1988 as amended in 2004. Moreover, the ministry's directives stress the need to form a committee to activate the students' discipline instructions provided that it is chaired by the director of dormitories. Such committees need a (lawyer) to be a member of it and he should be specialist in the clarification and interpretation of the instructions and the follow-up of other legal issues related to the right application of the required laws articles for each legal problem.
