Background: This paper aimed to study the relationship between spirituality, resiliency and coping strategies factors with students' psychological well-being in Razi University of Kermanshah.
Methods: The statistical population was Razi University students. The sample (N=375) were selected using stratified random sampling method. The information collection tools were demographic questionnaire, Ryff Psychology Well-Being Scale (RPWB), Spirituality experience of Ghobari and et al, Conner and Davidson Resiliency Questionnaire (CD-RISC) and Coping strategies Scale of Lazarus and Folkman (WOCQ).  This study was the correlation design and data were analyzed using stepwise regression.
Results: The results showed that variables such as: resiliency, spirituality, emotion-oriented and problem-oriented strategies predicted 60% of well-being variance (P<0/05).  There was a positive relationship between resiliency, spirituality and problem-oriented strategy factors with well-being (P<0/05). However, there was not any significant relationship between emotion-oriented coping strategy and well-being.
Conclusion: Since resiliency, spirituality and coping strategies variables are significant predictors of psychology well-being, the students psychological well-being will be enhanced by such capacities in educational settings.
