The students were between 18 and 24 years old and attended health courses. Method: cross-sectional study based on a survey, using an anonymous questionnaire filled out by the students. Results: There were 306 participants. Senior students used drugs as follows: 51.3% used tobacco, 90.8% used alcohol, 5.9% used marijuana, and 0.7% used cocaine. Differences were observed between perceived norms and actual drug use for tobacco (70% vs. 51.3%), marijuana (10% vs. 5.9%) and cocaine (8.3% vs. 0.7%). Conclusions: university students presented an overestimated rate for the use of tobacco, marijuana and cocaine among their peers.
