This paper presents the University Network Model with eight colleges, each college has a computer laboratory connected with each other, with university servers and also connected to the internet. The main applications that used in this model are web browsing by using Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), file transfer (FTP), electronic mail (E-mail), Remote Login and finally Messenger. According to the time of scholastic year in the university, three types of user profiles are defined. They are Exam Time, Weekdays and Weekends. By applying these profiles to the university model and using some main statistical to collect results, the best use of the network will get. This means that maximum throughputs with minimum time response and delay. The statistical that used in this model are delay time (response time) and throughputs.The university network model is modeled and simulated by using OPNET MODELER software package and all the results are collected from this simulator.Keywords: computer laboratory, HTTP, FTP, E-mail, Remote Login, Messenger, OPNET Modeler.
