Background and Purpose: Quality of life is a ubiquitous concept, and improving quality of life plays a pivotal role in the promotion of individual and social health. This parameter requires exclusive attention in case of students since quality of life remarkably affects learning and academic achievement.This study aimed to evaluate quality of life among the students of Islamic Azad University of Yazd, Iran.
Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted on 400 participants randomly selected from the student population of Yazd Islamic Azad University, Iran. Data were collected via self-report questionnaires about quality of life. Data analysis was
performed using SPSS V.16.0.
Results: In this study, mean of quality of life score was 16.16±146.91. In addition, a significant difference was found between quality of life and gender (t=2.7, P=0.007), place of residence (t=2.0, P=0.04) and insurance status (t=3.16, P=0.002) of the subjects. However, there was no significant difference between quality of life and field of study, education level and family size (P>0.05).
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, student quality of life was at an average level.Therefore, it is recommended
that special attention be given to the enhancement of this parameter among students. In this regard, programs focusing on conflict resolution, effective decision-making, self-defense and relationship improvement, as well as provision of recreational facilities, could be beneficial in increasing student quality of life.
