The study sample consisted of (988) male and female students enrolled in Jordanian universities. To achieve the purpose of the study, cyberbullying, psychological distress and Binge Eating Disorder  were measured. The results indicated that the percentage of students who have a Binge Eating Disorder  was (6.07%):  (38.33%) were male and (61.67%) were female. A chi-square analysis  indicated no significant differences in the prevalence of bulimia according to the gender variable.
