The aim of our study was to examine the levels of leisure barriers of female undergraduate students in the Faculty of Sports Sciences in terms of some demographic characteristics. The participants of our study are 120 randomly selected female undergraduate students who studied at Firat University Faculty of Sports Sciences in 2020. In order to determine the personal characteristics of the participants in the study, a personal information form (Age, Class, Department and Branch) and a scale of leisure barriers developed by Alexandris and Carroll (1997a) and adapted to Turkish by Gürbüz, Öncü, and Emir (2012) were applied. It is seen that the leisure barriers scale scores of female undergraduate students studying in the departments of the Faculty of Sport Sciences of Firat University are above average with an average of 2.79 in the individual psychology sub-dimension and, 2.77 in the lack of knowledge sub-dimension, 3.17 in the facility sub-dimension, 2.58 in the lack of friends sub-dimension, 3.09 in the time sub-dimension, and 2.85 in the lack of interest sub-dimension according to the findings of the study.
