The aim of this paper is to quantify the determinants of happiness in university students, with information drawn from a survey conducted with students at the University of Western Australia in 2003. An ordered probit model is applied. Happiness was linked to a range of factors, for instance, grades achieved, friendships developed, school facilities, opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities, and lecture quality. The findings reveal that the most important influences on the levels of satisfaction of students are school work, time management and relationships formed in university.
