A quality teacher–student relationship facilitates students’ psychological well-being, but the mechanism underlying this relationship remains unclear. To address this issue, we investigated the role of a supportive school climate in the link between teacher–student relationships and college students’ psychological well-being. We used a paper-based questionnaire to collect data from 318 students enrolled in three universities in west China, and used Amos 22.0 software to establish a structural equation model. The results indicated there was a significant positive link between teacher–student relationships and students’ psychological well-being, and that supportive school climate partially mediated this link. This study extends the conclusions of prior research and provides new insights into how teacher–student relationships affect the psychological well-being of college students.
