Introduction: There is certainly no doubt that health is one of the most important aspects of human life which as an essential condition plays social roles. The concept of lifestyle relies on the notion that individuals usually exhibit a recognizable model of behavior in their daily life. The study aimed to investigate the relationship between lifestyle and general health of students at Islamic Azad University of Bandar Abbas. Methods: This is a descriptive correlational study which included 764 students at Islamic Azad University of Bandar Abbas with no history of mental health disorders, chronic illness and disability before admission to the university. In this study, three questionnaires were used for the collection of data. Results: Most of students were single. The frequency of local students (from Bandar Abbas) was more than non-local ones. Most of them were financially dependent. There was a significant relationship between sex, marital status, state of residency, and the economic situation from the view point of general health (P<0.001). In terms of general health, there found a significant relationship between socioeconomic status, sport, smoking, nutrition, the principles of safety and stress.
