Abstract: The aim of this study is to describe university students’ concern and its complexity. Participants were 68 students from two private universities in Indonesia. In order to achieve deep understanding of the issue, the qualitative approach was adopted. Data were obtained through individual interviews and focus group discussions. Results show that problems related to academic, relationships with others, transitions to university romantic relationships, and self were frequently reported by students, Academic-related problems were mostly characterised by difficulties in coping with academic demands and difficulties over time management. In regard to problems in romantic relationships, the selection of a partner is a strong issue, which was complicated not only by a lack of social skills 10 build relationships, but also by parental prohibition from having such relationships before students complete their studies. Self-related problems involve concerns related to self-concept, Self-esteem and confidence, uncertainty about values and struggle toward maturity. The interrelations of these issues and the implication for supporting students are further discussed.
