Introduction: Any kind of behavior or practice that conflicts with the values ​​and norms accepted by the community is known as social harm, which can disrupt the function of the individual, the family, and the community. This study aimed to investigate the factors leading to social injuries among dormitory students.
Materials & Methods: This descriptive-analytic study was carried out on 337 dormitory students of the state universities in Ilam during 2016. The data were collected using a researcher-made questionnaire with 69 items.  Face validity, relative content validity coefficient (CVR), and content validity index (CVI) were used to evaluate the validity of the instrument. In this study, the CVI and CVR were obtained at 0.85 and 0.76, respectively. The reliability of the questionnaire was assessed by Cronbach's alpha coefficient at 0.87. Data were analyzed in SPSS software (version 20) through descriptive statistics to describe the data. Moreover, inferential statistics were used to analyze the data.
Findings: The Chi-square test results showed a significant difference between gender and the damage induced by the illegitimate relationship (P<0.05). Moreover, social injuries correlated significantly with friend status, being isolated, lack of familiarity with life skills, and lack of academic and educational facilities in dormitories (P<0.05).
Discussion & Conclusions: In this study, family problems, history of depression, presence of peer group and friends, and being far away from family were the most important factors affecting social harm in students. Therefore, it is suggested to develop appropriate strategies to prevent the emergence of social harms.
