The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors affecting the health promoting behaviors(HPB) of health-related and health-unrelated department university students. Data were collected by questionnaires from 189 health-related and 204 health-unrelated department university students. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and multiple regression. The quality of life and self-esteem showed a significantly positive correlation with HPB, but life stress showed a significantly negative correlation with HPB. The result of multiple regression analysis showed that three variables affected the HPB significantly(p<.001) and made a 27% prediction for health-related department university students and 34% for health-unrelated department university students. It is necessary to investigate the various influencing factors on HPB of university students and research the difference of HPB of health-related and health-unrelated department university students.
