The present study was an attempt to investigate the relationships between the meaning of life, resilience and subjective well-being among undergraduate students. The sample consisted of 195 undergraduate students (103 Male and 92 Female) from the age range of 17 to 22 years. Data were collected through a set of questionnaires, which tapped information pertaining to some demographics such as age, gender, and socioeconomic status along with Meaning in life questionnaire, Resilience scale, and Satisfaction with life scale. The results showed that meaning in life and resilience are positively associated with subjective well-being and meaning in life is also positively correlated with resilience. The findings also revealed that subjective well-being was predicted by meaning in life and resilience. The study has implications for promoting undergraduate student’s well-being through providing meaning in their life and opportunity to develop.
