    It means being disappointed. Hayal kırıklığı means broken dreams. Hayal is dream and kırık means broken. Uğramak has lots of different meanings, it is a pretty versatile verb. In the sentence above it means experiencing. Hayal kırıklığına uğramak = experiencing a situation which breaks your dreams.
