This research is an attempt to investigate the incidence of violence among university students using University of Lagos as a case study. A questionnaire on different kinds of violence was administered to 446 students of the university. In addition, four focus group discussion sessions were conducted to assess the types of violence that occur in different settings on the campus. Most of the respondents were aged 21-25 years. The results show that verbal violence was more rampant than the other types of violence. However physical violence was recorded more among students in the first year than the higher levels. The findings show the need for proper orientation and guidance on social interaction for new students of tertiary institutions.
