Abstract

The current study aimed to investigate the association between perceived stress and social and emotional loneliness among day scholars and hosteler students. After the extensive evaluation of the literature following hypotheses were formulated 1). There would be a significant relationship between perceived stress and social and emotional loneliness among day scholars and hosteler students, 2). There would be significant differences in perceived stress and social and emotional loneliness among day scholars and hosteler students. 3). Gender would exhibit significant differences in perceived stress and social and emotional loneliness among day scholars and hosteler students. For this study total of 120 participants were selected through simple random sampling from different universities located in Lahore. For measuring the variables, the revised UCLA loneliness scale and the perceived stress scale were used. Expressive and illative statistics including Pearson correlation and independent sample T-Test regression analysis were functional.
