Although exercise is necessary to maintain psychological well-being, opportunities to participate in exercise programs while attending Japanese universities are typically limited since the type of physical education classes included in primary and secondary schools are not usually available. However, university students in the sports department may have the opportunity to engage in much physical activity and their psychological status might be better than university students in non-sports departments. The present study aimed to determine whether the physical activity and psychological well-being of university students in the sports department differs from those in a nonsports department. One hundred thirty-three university students in the sports department and 172 university students in the welfare department participated in this study. Physical activity was evaluated by the Japanese Short version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ). Psychological well-being was assessed using the College Life Anxiety Scale (CLAS) and Kessler 6-item Psychological Distress Scale (K6). Students in the sports department had significantly greater physical activity and better CLAS scores than students in the welfare department. These results suggestthat university students in the sports department are more active and have better psychological well-being than those in non-sports departments.
