The HIV/AIDS knowledge survey was carried out among Nigerian university students to assess their level of knowledge about HIV/AIDS. A total of 900 undergraduates of Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island, Nigeria participated in the study. They consisted of 520 male students and 380 female students within the age bracket of 18 years and 40 years (M = 20.62, SD = 2.28). The main finding of the study indicated that current students have a highly favourable knowledge about HIV/AIDS. To this end, HIV/AIDS interventions that college counsellors could adopt to sustain this trend were advocated. (author's)
