Abstract: Data drawn from a detailed study of alcohol use among Chinese undergraduate college students in Singapore (N = 767) show identification with religious values and beliefs not to be a significant factor in terms of students' alcohol use. Students' place of residence (i.e., on campus in a hostel or off campus) was found to predict alcohol use but in a way opposite to the pattern commonly predicted - that is, students on campus tend to drink less than their off-campus counterparts. When religious values and beliefs identification as well as place of residence were examined together, it appears that these two factors have no influence on students' alcohol use.
