Background: Presently, many governments of developing countries have invested in the construction of new colleges and universities, in response to the increasing demand for higher education. This study aims to explore the health education needs in a university town.

Method: The present study adopts the purposive sampling and data were collected by interviews. The results showed that universities should access school clubs, campus media, and other existing educational resources to satisfy these needs. Key figures expressed the education teaching current health problems and many operation appeals. College students generally prefer a seminar, report, and the psychological consultation clinic. Key figures considered schools are equipped with the associations on mental health, which play a positive role. Students believe that the media provided by campus is still far from being enough. Key figures declare schools publicized health knowledge by the school newspaper, windows, radio, mental health activities, but the network construction is relatively backward. Most students think school doctors do not play its due role. Key figures also declare the specific situations and value of school doctor clinic are unknown.

Conclusions: These findings help us better understand the needs characteristics of university town college students’ health education. This can provide certain reference for other countries’ health education in university town.
