Introduction: Living in a dormitory can affect the quality and quantity of student’s sleep, which reduces student’s academic failure and performance. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess the quality of sleep and its causes and also consequences from the viewpoint of students residing in dormitories of the Faculty of Health of Semnan University of Medical Sciences (SUMS).
Materials and Methods: This study was descriptive-cross sectional. Relatively, the sample consisted of 249 dormitory students of the Faculty of Health of SUMS (Semnan, Iran, 2016) who were studied by census method. The data collection tool was a researcher-made questionnaire using Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Measurement completed by the participants themselves
Results: The mean age of students in this study was 21.78 ± 2.91 years. In total, 80.7% of female students and 72.1% of male students had poor sleep quality. The most common cause of sleep disorder was the presence of mental and intellectual involvement (53.8%). Also, about half of the students expressed excessive sleepiness in class as a consequence of sleep disorder.
Conclusion: According to this study, the sleep quality of student’s living in a dormitory is in an unfavorable situation. Conclusively, sleep disturbances should be considered as a major health problem among dormitory students. Appropriate and compatible measurements in order to investigate the causes of sleep disorders in students and also reducing their adverse consequences can improve the quality of students sleep and their academic performance
