The assessment of individual health with the use of various techniques allows to obtain more complete information on the functioning of the body. For productive studying and professional development students need to have good health, which, under the current socio-economic environment, is under a lot of stress. The purpose of the study is a comparative analysis of students health assessments obtained by different methods and among different social groups of young people. For the analysis, we use the results of comprehensive medical examinations of 633 students (18-22 years) of Nizhny Novgorod state University, Arzamas branch (231 boys and 402 girls) on the basis of Arzamas Health Centre. The survey included questionnaires, anthropometry, bioimpedance analysis, cardiointervalography. Comparative analysis of students from different social groups shows that the factor "place of residence" has a greater impact on health than family structure. Urban students have better indicators of physical health, caloric intake and body componential structure, than rural ones, but at the same time, they have higher tension of regulatory systems of the body. Despite the high self-assessment of health, the students have serious health problems. Complex medical examinations on the basis of the Health Center give the possibility to reveal all disorders and start the necessary treatment immediately.
