Through the questionnaire survey of 387 undergraduate entrepreneurs, this paper adopts analysis methods such as literature research, empirical research and data statistical analysis, and modeling technology such as structural equation model to analyse the impact of social capital on the opportunity identification of entrepreneurial university students. This study concludes that social capital is positively correlated with entrepreneurial opportunity recognition, and entrepreneurial alertness plays an intermediary role. This study further enriches the theory of entrepreneurial opportunity recognition for university students, and helps university entrepreneurs to further understand the importance of social networks and entrepreneurial alertness for opportunity recognition, so as to build and improve personal social networks, enhance entrepreneurial awareness and opportunity recognition ability, and improve the success rate of entrepreneurship.
