Academic stress is a problem prevalent in university students, even more so when they share academic responsibilities, work and house hold obligations. The double or triple presence, is a very frequent condition in the cities of northern Chile, characterized by a high employability in the large-scale mining of copper, of which obliges men and women workers to study at evening or night hours. The purpose of this article was to determine the correlation between the double presence, psychosocial work factors and the prevalence of stress in that population. Using a descriptive design was explored 85 subjects using the questionnaire Istas-21 event, inventory SISCO of academic stress and a survey standardized demographic. The results indicate that most of the studied psychosocial dimensions present relations among themselves, academic stress has a strong association with the double presence, compensation, psychological demands and social support and that women show a higher level of psychosocial risk and stress academic than men by the dimension double pres ence. The symptoms most prevalent in the subjects studied were the alterations in sleep, appetite, restlessness, and way of coping. Both men and women, the authors acknowledge that the most relevant psychosocial risk double dimension constitutes presence, particu larly in the female gender and they reasonably assume that the information generated is a tool to consider in the management of health of labor organizations to protect the integrity of their workers.
