The aim of this study was to describe the alcohol consumption patterns and to identify the association of injury with excess drinking among Croatian students. This cross-sectional study was conducted among 845 university students by the use of the WHO AUDIT questionnaire. A total of 39.9% of the university students reported some level of excess drinking and 21.3% reported that injury to themselves or others occurred as a result of their alcohol use. Conclusively, these results demonstrate a significant need for comprehensive programs to reduce alcohol intake and associated alcohol problems, as well as programs to reduce injuries among Croatian university students.
