Coverage as a natural and universal phenomenon, although in pre-modern period was not socially, has undergone many changes in the post-modern period and has become social problem. Accordingly, the sociological study of university students coverage is the main purpose of this research. The theoretical framework of this research is based on the theories of Giddens, Goffman and Veblen, and the theories of social pathology. The statistical population of this research consists of students from different universities of Dehloran city with a population of 2524 people. The sample size is 320. The method of random sampling was used and the correlation test, regression analysis and path analysis were used to test the hypothesis.
Findings show that there is a significant relationship between the independent variables including internal values, religious beliefs, media, relationships disruption in family, social commitment, reference groups and girls coverage (dependent variable). Also, there was no significant relationship between socio-economic variables and education level with girls coverage.
In regression analysis, variables of religious beliefs (0.26%), social control (0.21%) and media (0.18%) had the highest effect coefficient of standardized regression on dependent variables, respectively. In the path analysis, variables such as religious beliefs and social control had direct and indirect effects, and the variance of relationships disruption in the family had only indirect effects.
