Family planning is achieved through use of different contraceptive methods among which the most effective methods are modern family planning methods like long acting reversible contraceptive which includes intra-uterine contraceptive device and Implants. The objective of this primary study was to assess utilization of long acting reversible contraceptive methods among female college students in Gondar town, northwest Ethiopia. The overall utilization of long acting reversible contraceptive methods among students was 20.4% (95% CI 18.1, 22.7) and the most commonly utilized long acting reversible contraceptive method was Implants 96.5% (95% CI 95.50, 97.50) followed by intra-uterine contraceptive device 3.5% (95% CI 2.97, 4.00). Marital status of the respondents [AOR = 3.97 (95% CI 2.05, 7.67)], discussion about long acting reversible contraceptive methods utilization with husbands or boyfriends [AOR = 2.20 (95% CI 1.19-4.06)] and attitude towards implants [AOR = 0.365 (95% CI 0.14, 0.93)] were found to be significantly associated with utilization of long acting reversible contraceptive among students.
