The paper focuses on the issues of maintaining students’ health and developing health-saving competencies as important tasks of higher education institutions. The research purpose is to study certain parameters of the health-oriented behavior in students of non-sports specialties from different universities and regions. The research is based on a sociological survey. Students of non-athletic specialties from the Altai State University (AltSU, N=92) and the Ural State University of Physical Education (UralSUPC, N= 98) took part in a survey. When comparing the results between university students, similar results turned out to be in terms of enthusiasm for social networks (67-70% of students) and students’ attitudes to smoking (25%). Different were the answers to questions about sleep time and walking. Research results obtained from AltSU students indicate the presence of a greater part of those students experiencing the lack of sleep and walking. The results obtained will allow to determine general and specific strategic tasks of a healthy-saving program at universities, which are aimed at the formation of healthy-oriented behavioral patterns in students.
