The transition from secondary school to university is often accompanied by unhealthy behavior changes such as decreasing physical activity and increasing sedentary behavior. Therefore, the aims of this study were to provide preliminary IPAQ scores among Sarajevo University students and compare them by gender. 103 students aged 22,32±1,90, who did not participate in additional trainings and/or organized physical activities were included in this study. Croatian version of Physical Activity Questionnaire (long IPAQ self-evaluation questionnaire) was used to evaluate respondent’s physical activity levels. The results indicate that the student population is most involved in moderate activities, both on a weekly and daily basis. In all variables representing physical activity, higher values were observed in male students, while female students had higher values in sitting. The results presented in this study showed that it is necessary to continuously take measures for promoting the sport at each University in Bosnia and Herzegovina (not only on Faculty of sport and physical education) with the aim of raising the health status of students to a higher level.
