The study was conducted with the main objective to study the significance of relationship of adjustment and happiness of male and female students with loneliness. To find out the gender difference on adjustment, happiness and loneliness. A random sample 100 male and 100 female students studying in various department of University were selected for the study. They were administered with UCLA loneliness scale (Russell D. 1996), CAT (Pennebaker, J.W., Colder, M., and Sharp, L.K. 1990) and Subjective happiness scale (Lyubomirsky, S., and Lepper, H, 1999).
