Background and Aim: Sense of coherence is a personal orientation to life that evaluates stress control and psychological well-being is mental component of quality of life. Although sense of coherence and psychological well-being can be a suitable framework for compromise, researchers have not experimentally examined them yet. Thus, the aim of this study was to examine correlation between psychological well-being and sense of coherence in the students of Islamic Azad University -Central Tehran Branch. Materials and Methods: 400 university students (200 girls and 200 boys) participated in this study and completed the psychological well-being index and sense of coherence questionnaire. Statistical analysis was performed using indicators and statistical methods including mean, frequency, percentage, t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and simultaneous regression analysis. Results: The results showed that 70% of total variance in sense of coherence is represented by psychological well-being (R2=%70). Forecast coefficient regression shows that the psychological well-being can significantly interpret the students’ variance of sense of coherence. Coefficient influence of psychological well-being (β=0.842) shows that the variable can predict the changes related to sense of coherence with 99% of confidence. The results also showed that in total, female university students had higher psychological well-being than male university students while, male university students had higher sense of coherence compared to the female students. ‍Conclusion: Research results show the important role that psychological well-being has in the field of sense of coherence. More attention to the psychological well-being that includes happiness and life satisfaction, and is a mental component of quality of life, provides a higher sense of coherence in the university students.
