Based on their gender and place of residence, the study sought to determine the social adjustment among students in colleges in the Thiruvananthapuram area. 120 adolescents between the ages of 18 and 20 who were studying in institutions of the Thiruvananthapuram district made up the sample. Out of the total sample of 120 students, the sample consisted of 60 male and 60 female students, as well as 60 students from rural and urban areas. Data was collected using Personal Data Sheet, and Adjustment Inventory for Students by A.K.P. Sinha and R.P. Singh (1995). The data were analysed statistically using the mean, standard deviation, t-test, and Pearson Product Moment correlation coefficient. When adjustment scores were compared by gender, there was also a significant difference between male and female students (t-value 4.363). The findings also showed that there was no statistically significant difference between students from rural and urban areas in terms of their scores on social adjustment.
