All the students voluntarily completed and returned the questionnaire. Multiple regression analysis was used to analyze the data using SPSS software. Results: It was found that, social support measures are better predictors for life satisfaction and affect balance in girls compared with boys. Moreover, perceived social support from family plays a more important role in girls when it comes to prediction of psychological and social well-being. In contrast, perceived social support from friends plays the same role in boys. Finally, perceived social support from special person and colleagues’ faculty can not significantly predict aspects of well-being. Conclusion: there were gender differences in addition to similarities in the relation between aspects of perceived social support and aspects of well-being.
