Objective: Many theorists agree that intimacy is a multidimensional concept and intimacy attitude components are different from intimate behavior components. This research aimed to determine the components of intimacy attitude in university students.

Methods: Based on revised intimacy attitude scale (IAS-R) which was originally developed by Amidon et al. (1983), intimacy attitude components are general intimacy, fear of rejection, loss of control in interpersonal intimacy, and sexual physical closeness. In the present study, 521 university students were evaluated to study the psychometric properties and validation of
IAS-R.

Results: The Cronbach &alpha was 0.84 and test-retest correlation was 0.83. Results of factor analysis supported the 4 specific structure components with different subscales. Multivariate analysis of variance corroborated that intimacy attitude is similar in different sexes and ages but varies regarding the above 4 components.

Conclusion: IAS-R showed acceptable psychometric qualities in Tehran university students.
