A new social environment has emerged in which different generations live together for a longer time with the changes in demography. The concept of intergenerational communication which refers communication among different age groups, deals forms of communication in the new social environment together with “generation” element. Studies that evaluate age groups as a category, often focus on young-old communication ad investigate the effects of stereotypes about elderliness. In intergenerational communication researches, it is stated that young people generally communicate more positively with their family members, prefer communicating with their peers, and stereotypes they have effects communication positively or negatively. In this study, the stereotypical beliefs of university students between the ages of 18 to 24, towards elders and the communication forms with elders were analyzed in the scope of intergenerational communication. As a result, it is found that young people have stereotypical beliefs about elder people. Some of them are negative like sickness, loneliness, weakness and some of them are positive like wisdom. It is seen that young people were communicating respectfully with elder people and the stereotypes have not got too much impact on young. Therefore, one can say that one of the reasons of that is the values about elder people in Turkish culture.
