Please see the below link for a study on the impact of gaming and gambling on college students in England. Includes helpful “next steps”:

YGAM’s recent survey amongst higher education students highlights that many are turning to video games and gambling in an attempt to relieve financial and academic pressures of university.

Over 2,000 students in higher education took part in the survey and whilst a large number of those asked said that they enjoyed the social side of both gaming and gambling, the results indicate that it can also have a negative impact on the academic performance of students and the quality of their friendships and social activities. In addition, for the students who gamble, nearly half said that they are constantly concerned about their financial situation.
