Summary/Abstract: A sociological survey was conducted at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridsky”, in which a specially developed questionnaire was aimed at revealing the intracommunity and multicultural tolerance among the students. Subject of the survey was the way the students assessed the extent of their tolerance to other peoples’ opinion, ethnical, religious identity and racial background, as well as the attitude of the students to the minority religious communities, existing in Bulgaria and to the migrants. The results of the survey show that a tolerant attitude is formed and prevails among the students with respect to different: opinion, ethnic groups, races and cultures. The respondents showed respect to the cultural traditions of the ethnic minorities and support for their preservation. However, the survey shows a lower tolerance of the students to the Roma minority and the Muslim communities, including the Muslim migrants.
