The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between undergraduates' perception of psychological separation and residential status. Two groups of students, those who lived at home with their parents (n=3 I) and those who did not (n= 55), were surveyed using the Psychological Separation Inventory (PSI). Using the four subscale scores from the PSI, a t-test for independent samples found no significant relationship between residential status and psychological separation. Additional statistical analysis failed to find a relationship between the scores and independent variables such as gender, age and years in college. It was concluded that this research failed to support the hypothesis that a relationship exists between a student's perception of psychological separation and residential status.
