Results: The prevalence of smoking was 30.3% including 44.7% of men and 15.9% of women (p<0.001). The mean duration of smoking was 4.933.41 years. There was a significant association between smoking behaviors among students and their gender, duration of study, income status, the existence of smoking among family and absence of one parent.
Conclusion: The prevalence of cigarette smoking among students of the Art University seems to be high. Utilizing proper methods to increase the level of knowledge might lead to a decrease in prevalence of smoking among this population.
