Kliment Ohridski” in Sofia, Bulgaria) from which 211 females and 82 males. Research was realized by using specially designed closed form of questionnaire, composed of 28 questions. Obtained results were analyzed using descriptive statistics parameters. Differences among student’s opinions were tested applying descriptive and comparative statistics. In general, differences between genders were noted mainly in questions related with the amount of available leisure time, attendance of sport events, participation in sport during previous education, participation in sport activity in leisure, frequency of weekly sport activity and type of selected sport. All results are greater for male students that in general, suggest on more active use of leisure time for males and greater sport activity during leisure, compared with their female colleagues. Result emphases the role of the University and faculties in suggesting different leisure time contents based on students preferences.
