The effectiveness of the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS; Zimet, Dahlem, Zimet, & Farley, 1988) was investigated with a sample of 340 Turkish university students. Results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses showed that the 3-subscale structure
of the MSPSS was valid. In addition, the results verified that the MSPSS has high internal and test-retest reliability. These results indicate that the MSPSS and its subscales can be used in research related to university students in Turkey.
