The data collection tool was a questionnaire of 21 questions for measuring stress, anxiety and depression, and a demographic questionnaire. Data were analyzed using SPSS 16 software and descriptive and inferential statistics.

Overall, 52 (15.2%) students of the first semester and 220 (64.3%) were residents of the dormitory. The findings showed that the mean and standard deviation of students' scores in the dimensions of stress, anxiety, and depression were, respectively, 8.39 ± 6.27, 4.99 ± 5.24, and 5.39 ± 6.22.
