The aim of this research is to compare the spirometric values of male and female students at different performance levels studying at the Faculty of Sport Sciences. 13 female students (average age: 22.38) and 11 male students (average age: 22.45) studying at the Faculty of Sport Sciences of Fırat University voluntarily participated in the research. The participants' anaerobic power values were measured with the Wingate test, their aerobic capacity with the Yo-Yo test, and respiratory function values with the spirometer. In spirometric measurements, forced expiratory volume in one second FEV1, forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume/forced vital capacity percentage, (forced expiratory volume/ forced vital capacity percentage – FEV1/ FVC%) and peak expiratory flow (PEF) values were recorded. Statistical analyzes of the obtained data were made with the SPSS 22.0 program, and the level of significance was determined as p<0.05. As a result of the statistical analysis of the data, no significant difference was found in the comparison of the spirometric values of female and male students in resting, aerobic and anaerobic performances (p<0.05). In comparisons made according to the smoking variable, no significant differences were found in spirometric measurements, anaerobic power and aerobic capacity (p<0.05). As a result, the spirometric measurement values of male and female students studying at the Faculty of Sport Sciences in different performances did not differ significantly.
