The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the sexual behaviours of 346 undergraduate students at Botswana University, using self-administered questionnaires. Presently, about two-thirds of the students reported, being sexually active. The majority used contraceptives, especially condoms. A large number of students were engaged in risky, sexual behaviours, such as having multiple sexual partners, inconsistent, contraceptives use, and intergenerational sex. It is necessary to modify the social and educational activities, to improve the understanding of the consequences of STI's and HIV and how risks could be minimized.
