This study aims to describe the patterns of morbidity, investigations and drug prescription among patients of Students’ Hospital, Mansoura University. This is a hospital-based descriptive study including both outpatients and inpatients students. The questionnaire for the outpatients’ students was completed by the treating doctor. Data of inpatients’ students was collected retrospectively from the records. Diseases of the skin and subcutaneous tissue and diseases of the eye and adnexa were the most frequent outpatients’ morbidity. The most frequent morbidities among inpatients are diseases of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, and diseases of the respiratory system. The average length of hospital stay was 2.8 days. The mean number of drug prescribed for outpatients and inpatients were 1.5 and 5.9; respectively. University students suffer a variety of morbidities. College health must move away from focusing on disease and move towards health promotive and preventive measures.
