Introduction: Concentration in the classroom, which has been less studied in studies, is one of the most important factors influencing learning. This study aimed to investigate the ecological factors affecting concentration in classroom from the viewpoint of the students of shahid sadoughi university of medical sciences, Yazd in 2017.

The data collection tool was a two-part 29- item questionnaire on demographic characteristics and ecological factors. The data were analyzed using SPSS18 using central dispersion index, T-Test and Chi Square.

In the domain of teacher, "the appropriate approach of the teacher to the students" the mean score was 4.12 ±1.33, in the field of the student "active participation in the class" was 4.30 ±1/22 and in the "large number of students in the classroom environment”, the highest score was 4.74 ±0.59 regarding classroom-related factors. The best time to hold a class was at 8-10 AM, with an abundance of 208 people and the front row with an abundance of 298 people was considered the best place to sit in the classroom from the student's viewpoint.
