Introduction: The compatibility of stud-ents with college life and its scope provides opportunities for personal and social gro-wth. This study aimed to determine the rel-ationship between nostalgia for the family and compatibility among students living in the dormitories of Shahr-e-kord University of Medical Sciences. Materials & Methods: In this descriptive study, all students admitted to Shahr-e-kord University of Medical Sciences during 2008 were included. The nostalgia for family and compatibility data were provided through validated homesickness questionnaires. The questionnaires were completed by the fres-hman students in a timetable manner. The data were analyzed by ANOVA, t-indep-endent and Spearman tests using SPSS vol.16 software. Findings: Totally, 121 students were incl-uded in the study in which 63.6% was fem-ale and 36.4% were male. The average sco-re of nostalgia for the family in females was 54.50±13.99, significantly higher than in males (41.78±15.49, P≤0.001). But the mean score of compatibility was not diffe-rent between the two groups (P≥0.05). Also, there was a significant correlation between mean score of nostalgia and compatibility. With increasing nostalgia for family, the compatibility was also being decreased. Discussion & Conclusion: Results of the present study, in cases the nostalgia for the family was higher, compatibility with uni-versity were more difficult. It seems that the family awareness may be useful in the prevention of negative behaviors. In this way, families could foster the sense of ind-ependency, to create the conditions in which their children to overcome the prob-lems related to nostalgia for family.
