Staphylococcus aureus is widespread in hospitals and communities among patients due to the increasing resistance to several antibiotics. This study was planned to determine the prevalence and antibiotics resistant pattern of Staphylococcus aureus from the nasal nares of healthy undergraduate students in Delta State University Asaba campus. Nasal samples totalling one hundred were collected from female and male undergraduates who voluntarily participated in this study. Standard bacteriological and identification techniques were used for the isolation of Staphylococcus aureus.
