Summary A questionnaire study carried out in 2000 documents for the first time data on psychosomatic problems and on substance use and abuse of students of the University of Applied Sciences in Frankfurt am Main. The results show that male students have more psychosomatic problems than female students, which are closely linked to heavy consumption patterns of psychoactive substances, especially tobacco smoking. Furthermore, the consumption patterns of female students do not differ from those of male students, which is rather alarming. As a consequence of the study, health promotion programs are discussed including programs to reduce smoking on Campus.

Goals of the Study The study is documenting for the first time at the University of Applied Sciences Frankfurt a. M. the health level, consumption of nicotine , alcohol and other drugs of students in their contexts. Based on this epidemiological data approaches to health promotion have been developed and are under construction.
