Stress is a special relationship between a person and their environment. In this case, a person assesses the environment either as beyond their resources or as posing a risk to their health. Several factors cause stress. One of these factors is the environmental factor. The current study has been done with the aim of investigating the effect of natural daylight on students’ stress reduction in the classroom. This research is a correlational study and in terms of purpose is an applied research. The research method is survey and the data collection instrument includes the standard questionnaire for measuring stress, anxiety, and depression (DASS-21). The reliability of the questionnaire was approved with the Cronbach’s alpha of 0.897. The questionnaires were analyzed by SPSS software version 22. Hypothesis testing was done by t-statistic, Pearson correlation coefficient, and regression. The Levin test was also used to verify the research hypotheses. The results of this study indicate that there is a relationship between daylight and stress, anxiety, and depression with correlation coefficients of 0.634, 0.742, and 0.698 have been found respectively (p< 0.01).
