This study focuses on university students' social capital, examines the effects of university students' social capital on psychological well-being and campus life adjustment, and analyzes the mediating effects of psychological well-being. Data were gathered from 205 university students. The results showed firstly that university students' social capital did not have a positive effect on personal adjustment. Secondly, social capital did not have a positive effect on academic adjustment. Thirdly, social capital has a positive effect on social adjustment. Finally, psychological well-being mediated the relationship between social capital and campus life adjustment. This study is unique in that it examines the relationship between social capital and campus life adjustment. In addition, theoretical implications can be found in examining the process of mutual cooperation among students and revealing that they are identified by the theory of social exchange. Practically, the study shows that active efforts are needed to strengthen social capital and create a cooperative environment at the school level.
