Asymptomatic bacteriuria is the significant presence of bacteria in the urine of an individual without symptoms. This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria among apparently healthy undergraduate students of LIMU. Consequently, All subjects were clinically identified to have no signs and symptoms. Urine samples were Mid-Stream Urine collected from 12 males and 12 females. The urine samples were examined microscopically and by cultural methods. Identification of isolates was by standard microbiological technique. The prevalence of significant asymptomatic bacteriuria was higher in females (76.9 %) than males (23.1 %). This study discussed the possible health implications of bacteriuria prevalence observed. And also emphasized the need for routine laboratory checks among university students, Particularly females.
