Introduction: Academic self-efficacy is one of the effective factors in students’ academic achievement  which is realized by various factors. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between health-promoting lifestyle and academic self-efficacy among students living in dormitories.
Methods: In this analytical-descriptive study  which has been done in 2016-2017, 250 students were selected through cluster sampling from all students living in dormitories of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences .For collecting data the Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile II Scale and the College Academic Self-Efficacy Scale were used. Data were analyzed using Pearson Correlation and Linear Regression tests through SPSS.
Results: The results showed that self-actualization components (r=0.364), health responsibility (r=0.470), interpersonal relationships (r=0.337), stress management (r=0.497), physical activity (r=0.485) and nutrition (r=0.510) have a significant and positive correlation with academic self-efficacy of the students (P <0.01). The results of regression analysis showed that the components of nutrition, health responsibility, physical activity, stress management could predict 51% of students' academic self-efficacy variance, respectively (F=56.67, R=0.717, R20.514).
Conclusion: The results of this study indicate the importance of self-actualization, responsibility for health, interpersonal relationships, stress management, physical activity and nutrition as a component of health-promoting lifestyle in students’ self-efficacy. So to develop students’ self-efficacy beliefs, attention to their lifestyle and training based on improving students’ lifestyle  should be considered.
