Materials and Methods: The statistical population of the study included 4704 people which study in 15 majors from associate degrees to doctoral education. With the use of Morgan table, the sample size was calculated to be 380. By using a disproportionate stratified random sampling, statistical samples were selected from the statistical population, and the data were collected by two questionnaires of quality of life which are summary of two standard questionnaires for quality of life, the World Health Organization and Keynesian social health questionnaire; findings were analyzed with in SPSS with descriptive statistics and Pearson's correlation coefficient, Spearman, Mann Whitney U, and Kruskal Wallis.
Results: Although quality of life, in comparison to social health, has a better utility, students’ quality of life is not in a good condition. Their social health is assessed by dimensions of prosperity, participation and compliance (a little higher than average); reception and integration (lower than average and weak). Overall, there is no relationship between social health and quality of life in one hand, as well as grade, major, income, gender and academic achievement of students on the other hand.
Conclusion: One of the major causes of social health and quality of life is trust. Therefore, in order to increase social health among students, it is necessary to increase their trust of other members of society and social institutions by providing clear information through responsible institutions, preference of criteria to relations and the attention of authorities to their wishes and needs.
