The aim of this study was to investigate levels of satisfaction with leisure time in foreign students of Kocaeli University. In the collection of the data, the Leisure Satisfaction Scale (LSS) and demographic status questionnaire were used; 257 male and 103 female students participated. In the LSS scores for the separate domains, participants scored highest in Education and lowest in the Aesthetic subscale. There was no statistically significant difference in satisfaction levels between the genders, monthly income groups, and levels of academic achievement; but statistically significant differences were found between the students’ faculties. Significant differences were found between faculties in the LSS scores on the Psychological subscale, and between students’ monthly incomes and the Relaxation subscale on the LSS. As a result, there was a significant difference between the different faculties and students’ satisfaction with leisure time on the Psychological subscale.
