This cross-sectional study belongs to themulticenter survey International Study of Violence in Dating Relationships applied to university students. Its goal is topresent the results on the report between violence in intimacy and depression,based on gender issues and its elements for understanding the constitution of the relationship of intimacy. There were 362 undergraduate students from two universities, one public and one private, of the State of São Paulo, being 37% male and 63% female, whose average age was 20 years old. For women, exclusively psychological violence, exclusively sexual violence and psychological and sexual violence together were associated with depression; the factors of violence acceptance and relations of power only presented an association to violence situations, but were not related to the connection between depression and violence. The study shows, in an original way, that this relation between depression and involvement in situations of violence can exist and it should be better investigated.
