In the acquisition of the data, “Beck Depression Scale, Rosenberg Self-Perception Scale, and Beck Anxiety Scale were used. The diagnostic statistics of the data were conducted and their homogeneity and variances were tested. In the analysis of the data, Independent Samples t test was used and Pearson Correlation analysis was conducted. While no statistical change was observed in line with the age and accommodation factors, statistical significant changes were identified in the case of self-respect, anxiety and Depression levels in line with the gender and the type of sports done (p<0.05). It is contemplated that the changes between the female and male students stem from the cultural structure in addition to the social structure, social responsibility, and duties, and it can be said that the reason for the values of self-respect, anxiety, and Depression in students performing team sports are more positive than those of the students doing individual sports arises from the specific structure of the sportive branches.
