This research was designed to find out a predictive role of social support, social adjustment and academic achievement among university students. A sample of 300 (i.e. 150 male and 150 female) participants, age (18-25) was selected from Government College University Faisalabad. It was hypothesized that “Perceived Social Support would be a Predictor of Social Adjustment and Academic Achievement among University Students”. Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, and Social Adjustment Scale were used to measure the said variables and the Academic Achievement was obtained through percentage/CGPA of the previous semester. The Correlational analysis was used to find the relationship among variables. Multiple Regression explored the prediction and t-test was used to see the gender, age, class and family differences on variables of interest. Results indicated that the research variables are positively correlated with each other and perceived social support significantly predicted social adjustment and academic achievement among university students. Non-Significant class, age group and family systems differences were found on study variables. Moreover, significant differences between male and female students were also found on social support, social adjustment and academic achievement.
