This study aimed to examine the clinical manifestations of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) in university students from countries with different drinking practices, and the potential of a drinking measure as an AUD marker. University students from Argentina (N = 2157), Spain (N = 320), and Brazil (N = 149) participated in the study. The TUA criteria and the cut off-points were compatible with the DSM 5, and a measure of binge drinking was evaluated. Descriptive and latent class analyses were performed. In general, the severe AUD is characterized by the endorsement of all criteria; the moderate-mild, by tolerance, loss of control (quit/cut), interpersonal problems, and role impairment. In countries with a wet drinking pattern (Argentina and Spain), the criteria of hazardous use and psychological or physical problems due to use were characteristic of different severity levels. The binge drinking measure showed potential as a marker of TUA.
