The current study is a descriptive study aiming to examine the relationship between the psychological well-being and mental toughness levels of students doing sports. The sample of the research consists of 335 university students (Mean= 21.41 ± 3.24), 134 female and 201 male. The “Psychological Well-Being Scale” developed by Diener et al. (2010) and adapted into Turkish by Telef (2013) was used and The “Mental Toughness Scale” developed by Sheard et al. (2009) and adapted into Turkish by Altıntaş (2015) was used. Single-sample Kolmogorov Smirnov and Shapiro Wilk normality tests were applied to determine whether the measurements were suitable for normal distribution. Since it did not show a normal distribution, Mann Whitney-U test was used for pairwise comparisons and Kruskal Wallis-H test for multiple comparisons. According to the results of the research, it was concluded that while the psychological well-being scale averages of the participants were above the mid-level with Mean=41.00, the mental toughness scale averages of the students were above the mid-level with Mean=39.03. According to personal characteristics, it was found that the psychological well-being and mental toughness levels of the participants made a significant difference in terms of some variables and did not create a significant difference in terms of some variables. It was found that there was a positive and significant relationship between the psychological well-being and mental toughness levels of the students participating in the study.
