Objective: This study aimed to determine health related quality of life in dormitory and non-dormitory students.

Methods: This study was a cross-sectional research conducted in Guilan University of Medical Sciences in 2010. Data needed to determine health-related quality of life were collected via convenience sampling using SF-36 questionnaire from 50 dormitory and 150 non-dormitory students. Data collected were analyzed using statistical T- test, chi square, linear regression and Kolmogorov-Smirnov).

Results: Mean total score of health-related quality of life in dormitory students (62.74±14.35) was significantly less than non-dormitory students (72.25±10.95) (p<0.01). Also analysis of linear regression indicated that health related quality of life in non-dormitory students was 9.65 scores more than dormitory students.
