Abstract

This study aimed to research the satisfaction with life and psychological well-being of university students during the Coronavirus epidemic. The survey of satisfaction with life and psychological well-being that was filled out by entirely 649 university students was evaluated. Independent t-test, one-way variance analysis, and LSD tests were utilized in statistical processes. Differences in satisfaction with life and psychological well-being scores based on gender are statistically significant (p<0. 001). Satisfaction with life and psychological wellbeing scores according to sleeping routine and immunity status that they perceived in themselves significantly varied (p<0.001). Again, satisfaction with life and psychological wellbeing scores according to the duration of watching television and following coronavirus news on the internet during the epidemic (p<0.001). It was also determined that satisfaction with life and psychological well-being scores varied based on the level of exposure to coronavirus news on social media (p<0.001). Satisfaction with life and psychological well-being in university students vary based on gender, sleeping routine, and belief in their own immunity. It is suggested to the students that they should avoid attitudes that can disturb their sleeping pattern and make them lose their confidence in immunity.
