Statement of the Problem: The background of this study is referring to the phenomenon of Indonesian students who live outside their hometown tend to have a careless eating habit. The difference in study location may cause a different type of eating habits between Indonesia and overseas, furthermore study intensity, meal preparation, and food access also may be influenced by this difference of study location. The purpose of this study is to determine the correlation between study location and eating habits for students who go abroad in Malang, Indonesia and in the city of Taipei, Taiwan. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: Subjects were Indonesian college students who live outside their hometown for doing the study to Malang city, Indonesia and Taipei city, Taiwan. The total target sample was obtained as many as 493 respondents (397 respondents in Malang city and 96 respondents in Taipei City). Measured variables were studied intensity, meal preparation, food access, and eating habits in both two cities. Findings: The Indonesian college students, who lived in both Malang city and Taipei city, did not have the significant difference in eating habits. However, the trend showed healthier eating habits in Malang city. On the other hand, study intensity, meal preparation, and food access were significantly different in both cities. Indonesian college students in Taipei tended to have higher prevalence of low study intensity, dependent meal preparation, and difficult food access. Conclusion & Significance: There is the significant correlation between study location and study intensity, meal preparation, food access, but not eating habits. Future research is needed to know the reasons for this insignificant correlation between eating habits in these two countries.
