BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY 
Globally,   the   youth   proportion   of the population is increasing (Oladepo and Brieger, 1994). In Nigeria, it is estimated that youths aged 15 to 24 years make approximately 20% of the 130 million populations (Adegbenga et al., 2003). The  life  of these youths  especially  on  the University campuses is liberal, where students becomes independent and free from all kinds of restrictions or rules guiding their behaviour.

Almost half of the 16-year old high-school students surveyed showed that 46% of them had sexual intercourse. Use of contraceptives at first intercourse had increased to 76%. More students in practical rather than theoretical programs had sexual intercourse at an earlier age, had more partners, and used contraceptives at first intercourse less often. The study also showed that three (3) out of four (4) of 18 year old students, had had sexual intercourse of which almost three quarter reported contraceptive use at first experience (Ellisabet, 2005).

Sexual behaviours and practices and their effects on sexual and reproductive health have become a very worrisome issue worldwide, including the sub-Saharan region, Nigeria and even Kaduna especially as it concerns the youths of which university students form a very significant part.

A report by the Action Health Incorporated shows that young people between the ages of 15 to 24 years account for the majority of unwanted pregnancies, complication from unsafe abortions and sexually transmitted infections in Nigeria (Action Health Incorporated, 2006). This situation was found to be high in Northern Nigeria where hundreds of thousands of young people are exposed to high level of maternal mortality, though these findings may not reflect the case amongst undergraduates who are more enlightened than their counterparts in rural communities. Okonkwo (2008) affirmed that high risk of sexual behaviours are prevalent in tertiary educational institutions in Nigeria and that student’s belief and attitude towards HIV/ AIDS for instance did not influence their decisions to use condoms. Therefore, this study examines sexual behaviours and contraceptive use, a case study of Kaduna State University (KASU).
