Main purpose of this study is to determine whether or not social capital level of university students vary based on demographic factors. In line with this purpose, the relationship between social capital level of university students and demographic factors is analyzed. Population of the study consists of 400 university students who study at Psychology and Civil Engineering programmes (the 1st,2nd, 3rd and 4th years) at Hasan Kalyoncu University in 2017-2018 academic year. The university students who were chosen by using random sampling were given questionnaires and 388 of them were evaluated. It is found in reliability analysis that the scale is highly reliable (0.60≤α<0.80). As a result of the study, it is observed that the female students and the students from psychology programme attach more importance to neighbor relations than the male students and students from civil engineering programme (2.80>2.71); being successful at lessons increases the level of social capital; the students with low income background attach more importance to neighbor relations than the ones with high income background and the students whose monthly household income is between TL 7.501-10.500 have more social capital than the students whose monthly household income is higher than TL 10.501. In addition, it is also found that students’ levels of social capital do not correlate with parent’s education level.
