environmental problems. Young people’s environmental attitudes are particularly important because
young people ultimately will be affected by and will need to provide solutions to environmental
problems arising from present-day actions. This study aims to determine undergraduate students’
environmental attitudes.When the related literature is examined, it is seen that there are limited
number of studies aiming to determine the attitudes of the university student towards the
environment in general. For this reason, this study; has been planned and carried out in order to
determine the environmental attitude of the students. 224 students studying at Hacettepe University
have participated in this research made in order to determine the attitude of the students. In the
study, a questionnaire composed of "Environmental Attitude Scale” has been used as a data
collection tool. The average score of the environmental attitude levels of the students who
participated in the study has been reported as ( =3,84). In conclusion, it was determined that
undergraduate students’ environmental levels vary significantly by gender, family type status and
