This project will cover The analysis and design of a reinforced concrete structural system for AL-Quds Open University- Alzawya that  will serve the students in that region , the building  will be located in Al-Zawya village in the middle between jenin and Nablus , far approximately  18 km from Jenin. The most important aim of the establishment of this building is to solve the problem of congestion in the two old building in two cities  .   This project is suggested to be constructed in the future, the building consist of a ground floor, and top three floors, with a total area of  5000 m2. The Ground floor will have hall and offices for accounting , student council and Cafeteria  with an area of 1400 m2.  First floor will be lecture halls and a computer laboratory with an area of 1400 m2.  In addition, the second floor will be lecture halls and offices for full-time overseer, the area of the floor is 1200 m2, and the last floor will be offices for the manager of university , secretary  and teachers  with an area of 1000 m2. This building was chosen to design  because  may be the first approach from projects for the branches of AL- Quds Open University that which will be built in the future in addition to this information , it's   plan contains spans up to 7 m and curve beam .   Structural models will be analyzed and designed by using ETABS computer software, and the results will be checked by hand calculations. In addition, AutoCAD , structure detailing , ETABS software will be used in drawing sections and details. The Structural elements will be designed as reinforced concrete members according to strength and serviceability criteria as specified in ACE 7-2010 and ACI 318 , for seismic design UBC 97 will be used  and  we will used SAFE software to design the foundation.
