This study aimed to identify potential challenges of implementing inclusive education practices at X University, Jordan, as perceived by students with disabilities. The study used a qualitative case study methodology by interviewing ten students with sensory and physical disabilities. Semi-structured interviews and descriptive coding strategies were used to collect and analyze the data. The findings identified five themes that represented the main challenges with inclusive educational practices faced by the students with disabilities at the university: physical environment, modifications, personal attitudes, assistive technologies, support, and administrative procedures. This study suggests a set of recommendations that could provide the best inclusive education practices in Jordanian universities.
