The article presents the views of scientists on the problem of student youth health saving, justifies the need to create a health-saving space in higher educational institutions. A contradiction between the society’s need for healthy student youth and the undeveloped system of a health-saving environment in higher educational institutions is revealed. The relevance and importance of the axiological approach to the process of formation of the health-saving space of the university is considered. A structural-functional model of the health-saving space of the university is presented, consisting of three components: cognitive, value and activity-effective. The main characteristics of the health-saving space are determined and the content of health-saving technologies aimed at preserving the student's health as a subject-object of the educational process is disclosed. The experience of creating a health-saving space in the Krasnoyarsk State Pedagogical University named after V.P. Astafiev in order to train competitive specialists. It is substantiated that the proposed structural and functional model of a health-saving space can be successfully used to design such spaces on the basis of a particular institution.
