The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship between circadian types (morningness-eveningness) and anxiety among the university students.

 Materials & Methods: The method of present study was causal-comparative. Research participants were 288 (123 boys and 165 girls) of the university students. The scores obtained on the morningness-eveningness Questionnaire (MEQ) of Horn and Ostberg and state-trait anxiety inventory of spielberg. Data were analyzed by multivariable analysis of variance (Manova) and Analysis of variance (ANOVA) between two independent groups.

 Results: The results showed that there was a significant relationship between two circadian type and anxiety (p<0/001). The result of Manova showed that there are significant differences between two circadian types in state-trait anxiety. The results of ANOVA showed that in circadian types and state-trait anxiety there isn’t significant differences between two groups.

 Conclusion : Based on the findings of this study could be concluded that the anxiety is related to circadian type eveningness.
