Human Immuno Deficiency Virus/Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is unique in its devastating impact on the social, economic and demographic de velopment. This study was conducted to assess College students’ ‘knowledge’ about condom distribution, high - risk behavior and pattern of condom utilization. A cross - sectional study was done among 383 students of GCMS. Data were collected using a pre - tes ted self - administered questionnaire. Out of 383 students 214 (56.1%) were sexually active. Among the sexually active students, 37.1% reported ever use of condom. Consistent condom use was reported only by 6.4%. Sexual contact with commercial sex worker s was reported by 7.8% of them. Consistent use of condom regardless of partner characteristics should be encouraged among students.
