A total of 407 male and female students were included in the present study performed in 2009. The Beck questionnaire was used as the measuring tool to collect data.

Our data showed that 18.2% of students suffered from severe depression. The depression rate in Takestan, Abhar, and Bouin-Zahra dormitories was, 17.5, 14.7, and 21.9%, respectively.
