Background: Psychological resilience is the adaptation of individual in the face of negative situations and the ability to fight these situations. Since university life can be stressful, university students are considered as a risk group in terms of psychological resilience. The purpose of this research is to examine the relationship between psychological resilience levels and anxiety levels of university students and to make comparisons in terms of physical activity levels, gender and academic achievement. Material and methods: 360 university students voluntarily participated in research. Short Psychological Resilience Scale, Beck Anxiety Inventory and International Physical Activity Questionnaire were used in the research. Results: According to findings, there was a negative relationship between students' psychological resilience and anxiety levels. In terms of gender, there was no significant difference between resilience levels and anxiety levels. A significant difference was found between resilience and anxiety levels in favor of students' doing physical activity. It has been found that students who are 'academically good' are more resilient than students who are academically moderate and worse, and their total anxiety levels are also lower Conclusions: As a result, it can be said that doing regular sports positively affects students' psychological resilience and anxiety.
