Abstract: The article is devoted to the phenomenon of happiness of Russian students, an understudied topic, in contrast to social well-being and its components, including satisfaction with the quality of education and the conditions for receiving it. The results of mass surveys conducted among students of Kazan in 2013-2018 are discussed. The level of happiness, along with the state of health and well-being, is a criterion for the comfort of a given society for life. By analogy with the indices of happiness, which are calculated for residents of countries and cities, the index of happiness of students is calculated. The article shows the relationship between the level of happiness and the ways of daily life of students. Comparison of the obtained data with the index of happiness of Russians shows opposite trends: the index of happiness of Russians from 2013 to the present has been growing steadily, while the index of happiness of students – decreasing. This is probably due to the constant reform of the higher education system and its ambiguous consequences. There are alternative forms of education in addition to the traditional. It can be concluded that the level of students ‘happiness is a complex, multi-level phenomenon, which is mainly subjective in nature and depends on many factors, the main of which, in addition to health, are the realistic prospects for professional self-realization, as well as the conditions of students’ daily life.
