Findings: Participants had mean age of 19.95 ± 1.65 years.129 cases (51.6%) were boys and 121 cases (48.4%) were girls. There was no significant association between sleep disorders and body activity in studied population (P=0.250). Girls’ Body activity was significantly less than boys’ (P<0.001). Sleep disorder severity was not significantly different between the two genders (P=0.065). Body activity and sleep disorders severity were significantly different in various majors (P=0.013 and P=0.004, respectively).
