  Background and Objective: Appropriate spending of free time can be considered as an effective means to promote the physical, psychological and moral aspects of life and to avoid of social misconduct. Since it is true for students, we tried to study the leisure time of university students in Golestan province, 2007.

  Material and Methods: In this descriptive survey (2007), the subjects were 1080 male and female students, selected­ by a randomized Multi-Stage sampling, from some universities (Golestan university of Medical sciences, Golestan University of agriculture and natural resources, Gorgan and Aliabad Azad University) in Golestan province.The data were collected using a valid and reliable questionnaire including 63 questions, and described by descriptive statistics.

  Results: The students were female (55.8%), male (54.2%) and range of 18-26 years. Their leisure time were more than 3 hours (49.3%), less than 3 hours (31.7%) only one hour in a day (12.5%) and nothing (6.5%). The students spent their time by sending message
(30.1%), surfing the internet (27.2%), and physical activity such as walking and climbing (15.8%), talking on the phone (21%), chatting with friends (9.4%) and sleeping and watching movies (3.8%).

  Conclusion: Because text messaging and surfing the internet are the main hobbies of the students , we recommend parents and university officials to have appropriate policy to help young people for using them in a healthy way.
