This studywasconducted in fouruniversities in Ankara, withtheaim of evaluatingthephysicalactivitylevelsandnutritionalhabits of universitystudents. Thesamplecomprised of 1000 universitystudents, %52.6 (n: 526) weremalesand %47.4 (n: 475) werefemales. Data on general characteristics of thestudentswerecollected, self-reported body weightsandheightswererecordednutritionalhabitsweredeterminedbyfoodpropensityqu estionnaireand 2 daysphysicalactivityrecallsweredeterminedwith a questionnaire. Alsodataonthequality of thedietwascollectedwith a MediterraneanDietQuality Index(KIDMED)questionnaireand 7 daysphysicalactivityprofilesby an International PhysicalQuestionnaire ( IPAQ). Mean (±SD) ageand body massindex (BMI)of themaleswere22.5±3.4 yearsand 23.3±3.4 kg/m²andfemaleswere 21.6±2.7 yearsand 20.9±2.6 kg/m², respectively. Majority of thestudents (70.2% of malesand 74.9% of females)had normal BMIvalues (≥18.5-<24.9 kg/m). Of thesample, 4.6% and 63.3% of themales, 5.5% and 48.5% of thefemalesshowedhigh (>8) andverylow (<3)KIDMED indexresults.Out of total, 31.2% of malesand 30.6% of femaleswereliving in sedentarylifestyle. Total physicalactivitylevelswerecalculated as 1786.9METs-min/weekformalesand 1699.2 METs-Min/weekforfemales. As a conclusion, KIDMED scoresand IPAQ resultswere not satisfactory. Therefore, efficientpoliciesshould be developedandawareness of theuniversitystudentstoperformhealthynutritionalhabitsandtoincreasethephysicalactiv itylevelsshould be increased.
