Discusses plans of marriage among students and the problems of student families. Comprehensive sociohygienic study of the health status and communal conditions was carried out among the students of the Russian Peoples' Friendship University, including married students with children. This social group is characterized by a peculiar life style, intensive intellectual and social activity; moreover, it is the most favorable period for marriage and childbirth. Special attention is paid to difficulties (material, communal, educational, etc.) experienced by the female students becoming mothers in the course of studies. Specific medicodemographic tendencies brought the authors to a conclusion that development and introduction of programs of medicosocial support for student families, specifically, mothers, is needed, which should be aimed at the soonest possible solution of the acute problems of maintaining the health of mothers and their children.
