[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] This study aimed to understand how the health-disease process happens among university students that live in the students' housing in the Butanta campus of University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, in relation to alcohol abuse and of other street drugs. It aimed also to identify the objective conditions of this process and to analyze the underlining manifestations of gender problems associated to it. The theoretical basis for this study was the Social Determination Theory of Health-Disease Process, as well as the analytical category of Gender: these allowed to a better comprehension of the quality of this process in each subject. Data were collected through interview with eight students living in the campus about their life's stories and their alcohol and other drug-use behaviors, before and after their moving to the campus housing building, and topics on gender prejudice and differences in the use of drugs between men and women. Data were treated with the content analysis, according to the method proposed by Pierre Bordieu, which considers the reality expressed in the speeches of the living subjects. After data analysis, we concluded that the freedom environment of the students' housing in the campus, the depression, the unemployment and the characteristics of the campus environment are conditions that favor alcohol and drugs abuse among subjects that move to the campus already dependent on drugs. We concluded also that in the campus housing, the gender stereotypes, like the feminine inferiority, prejudices and blaming for the use of drugs are reproduced.
