Impact of Urban Environment on Students' Daily Rhythms and Sleep Patterns

This article presents the results of a research of the sleep patterns of 200 students living in dormitories in Moscow. The average duration of night sleep in the surveyed group was 6h 37min. The proportion of students satisfied with the duration of night sleep was 36.5 %. Daily activity rhythms, in particular, the going to sleep and awakening time at the same time, are compiled by 47.5 % of the surveyed students. 86.5 % of students go to bed after midnight. The most late going to sleep time is observed among students of the 1st and 4th years. 37 % of students suffer from insomnia, which is most often caused by stress and work in extracurricular time. It was found that the best indicators of well-being and learning ability were observed at night sleep duration from 6 to 8 hours. When the duration of night sleep is less than 6 hours, there was a deterioration in the state of students' health, wellbeing and learning ability. It was revealed that 92.2 % of students who fall ill three or more times a year have a night sleep duration of less than 6 hours. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2020.
