This study addresses an intriguing issue: does social integration impact on self-reported happiness? Can segregation overwhelm the efects of other determinants claimed to positively afect people’s well-being? Research on this topic normally focuses on racial-based segregation and international migration. This paper calls the attention to what happens when integration involves well-of internal migrants, i.e. of-site university students. Using survey data, we conduct an OPR to detect any relationship between integration and selfreported happiness, controlling for a set of individual characteristics and endogeneity. The results suggest that increased perceived lack of integration is associated with a reduction in happiness.
