This study aims to determine the impact of Muslim student religiosity on local wisdom in Indonesia. This study uses a quantitative approach by distributing questionnaires to 1026 students. The sample is taken based on the purposive sampling technique, which is only targeting Muslim students who practice moderate Islamic teachings. This study uses five dimensions of religiosity, namely spirituality (X1), ideological (X2), intellectual (X3), experiential (X4), and consequential (X5). To estimate the effect of these dimensions, this study applies multiple linear regression models. The results reveal there is a positive relationship between students’ religiosity and local wisdom in Indonesia. Empirical evidence also indicates that there are only three dimensions of religiosity that have a positive and statistically significant effect on local wisdom, namely ideological, intellectual, and consequential. Then, the consequential dimension has the highest effect, where the regression coefficient is 1.54. Meanwhile, the dimensions of spirituality and experience are known to have a positive but insignificant effect. The implication is that Muslim students who have an open attitude and are not rigid are very good social assets in preserving the values of local wisdom in Indonesia.
