An-Najah National University contains more than twenty academic and administrative buildings. This project is concerning with faculty of law which is constructed in 2015. This building is divided into two building blocks. The first block consists of basement floor, and the second part consists of six floors with total area of five thousands and ninety m². Structural analysis and design is conducted under gravity and seismic loads. The design is planned to be performed in two-stages. StageІ included structural analysis under gravity loads only, while in stageІІ, the building is designed for seismic loads beside to the static loads. This report will show the procedure of analysis and design of the collage for gravity only. The analysis and design process started by basic assumptions regarding the structural systems, loading scenarios, and initial dimension of the members. The main load bearing system was considered to be made of slab on drop beams carried by columns, with two alternatives for slabs, namely one-way solid slabs and two-way U-boot slabs. Full 3D models are then created using SAP2000 program for each building block with the slab systems. The structural elements designed as reinforced concrete members according to strength and serviceability criteria as specified in ACI 318.
