This study was conducted to determine the barriers to leisure time and motivation levels of university students, to compare them in terms of demographic variables and to determine the relationships between them. This study is a correlational survey model in which Leisure Time Motivation Scale and Barriers to Leisure Time Scale were used. The sample of the study consisted of 317 volunteers who study at Bartın University School of Physical Education and Sports. The statistical methods used for the evaluation of research data are frequency distributions, T-test for binary groups, ANOVA analysis for multiple groups and pearson correlation analysis for determining the relationship. The results of the study revealed that the perceptions of the participants about barriers to leisure time were above average and this was due to the perceptions of lack of relevant facilities and lack of sufficient time. Higher identification-introjection and knowing-succeeding dimensions were more significant in leisure time motivation levels. There was no relationship between barriers to leisure time and leisure time motivation levels. When the findings of the study were evaluated in terms of demographic variables, significant differences were determined for sex and age variables.
