The philosophy of university is not only science education in its specialized meaning. The socialization of students, values of teamwork, and finding a peaceful sense of living with others are parts of university mission in the intellectual and human capitals development. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between social climate of university and students’ quality of life. This was a descriptive – correlation research. The population consisted of students in Farhangian University. A number of 175 cases were selected as sample using random stratified sampling method; the Halpin and Kraft’s Social Climate questionnaire (1993) and Ainle and Burke’s Quality of Life in Educational Environment questionnaire (1992) were distributed among them. The descriptive statistics and correlation coefficients were used to analyze the data. The results showed that there was a significant relationship between close and open social climate in university and students’ quality of life. Therefore, the more open the social climate in university, the more the students’ quality of life. However, having a sense of belonging to the university, participation and accountability, and creating an intimate relationship between actors can improve the quality of students’ life.
