The lack of guidance related to healthy and clean behavior towards the community in the boarding school by primary healthcare workers, which has stopped since the Covid-19 pandemic era, has caused the need to identify the risk of diseases that often affect students. The study aimed to identify the clean and healthy living behavior of pupils in Islamic boarding schools. A survey method was conducted on 97 pupils of Nurul Huda Islamic boarding school in Bandung regency by using the questionnaire of PHBS (perilaku hidup bersih dan sehat). They were recruited to fill out 18 items of a questionnaire of clean and healthy behavior with a total sampling strategy. Our finding indicated that participant was dominated by the age of 13-15 years old (58.76%), with female pupils greater than male pupils (60.82%:39.18%). Most of them are at the junior high school level (52.58%), followed by senior high school (37.11%) and elementary school (10.31%). The result of the study shows ablution before doing prayers, and the use of clean water are two habits that are very dominant among students. However, the habit of cleaning places that become mosquito nests and exercising are two habits that are still low, so they need to be improved. We summarize that clean and healthy living behaviors among students, in general, are quite good, and this reflects that they have implemented the behaviors expected by health workers in maintaining cleanliness and health.
