The study investigated the alcohol consumption amon g university students (N = 658, mean age 20.63 ± 2.59 y/o). More than 90% of studen ts consume alcohol. Although the alcohol abuse is more serious in male students, females are also affected. Almost 90% of male and 80% of female students have been drunk during their life. Binge dr inking is widespread among the university students. Drinking pattern does not depend on marit al status; and most students do not drink alone. It suggests that they consume alcohol rather for fun t han for melancholy. The persistence of high levels of alcohol consumption in a large proportion of uni versity students stresses the need for effective preventive and treatment interventions for both sex es. Keywords : alcohol consumption, binge drinking, university s tudents.
