The aim of this study is to investigate whether there is a positive or negative relationship between the quality of life of the students and their physical activity levels (PAL). A total of 469 students participated in the study (female = 209, male = 260). The physical activity levels of the participants were determined as "International Physical Activity Questionnaire Short Form (IPAQ-SF)" and their quality of life was determined by the World Health Organization (WHOQOL-BREF). In the statistical analysis, parametric tests were used because of the normal and homogeneous distribution of the data. The difference between PAL and quality of life scores was evaluated by MANOVA test. The relationship between PAL and quality of life of the participants was tested by Pearson Correlation test. The overall health status of the participants was 87% (n = 408) good-very good and the level of physical activity was 88.1% (n = 413) moderate-high active. There was no statistically significant difference between the PAL and quality of life scores of the participants. After Pearson Correlation test, there was no correlation between PAL and quality of life at r2 at p
