Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 20, descriptive statistics, one way ANOVA and Chi- square. The prevalence of moderate and severe loneliness was reported to be 50.5% and 31.6%, respectively. In addition, there was a significant relationship between loneliness of the participants and their gender (P < 0.001), birth order (P = 0.004), birth place (P < 0.001), and academic term (P = 0.001). The results of the present study accentuate the necessity of paying attention to the loneliness status in students, exploring situations and reasons that intensify the feeling in this age group as well as identify intervention plans that could reduce it.
