948 students and academic staff members from various departments and grades of the faculties of economics and administrative sciences took part in this analysis which was conducted in a practical manner. The research lasted for around 7 months. Within this period, a total of 7850 questionnaire forms were distributed by hand, e-mail or mail. The number of questionnaires that were returned was 1691 while only 948 of them were found to be eligible. Simple random sampling method was used in our research. All participants were selected randomly. Participants were not requested to provide any identity information or any other official information to identify them. The questionnaire used in the research comprised of two parts; the first part included questions regarding the demographic characteristics of the participants while the second part included questions with a 5-point Likert scale (N=52). Correlation test, analysis of variance, independent samples test, t-test and validity-reliability test were applied to the acquired data through the SPSS statistical software. Since the questionnaire which was the measuring tool of the research was used for the first time, a preliminary test was applied and a reliability coefficient of 0.872 was found in consequence of the preliminary test. Data from 128 participants were included in the preliminary test. In consequence of the research, following conclusions were made: institution, product and satisfaction levels were higher among those receiving master’s or higher-level education while they were lower among undergraduate students according to their fathers’ income and education level; among students that lived in dormitories and received services, these values varied by their mothers’ education level and status of employment; the differences in satisfaction did not vary to a significant extent among the children of employed mothers, and the choice and satisfaction level among children of housewives varied. The school dimension and the satisfaction level at housing places belonging to the public sector were generally the same while the satisfaction level at private institutions and housing centers varied. It was also observed that choices and satisfaction levels varied by the level of income.
