A convenience sample of 400 students were recruited to investigate gender differences in sleep habits and sleep-related problems using a self-administered questionnaire. Univaraiate analysis showed that females went to bed earlier (p<0.01) and rose earlier (p<0.01), had longer sleep duration (p<0.01), more nightmares (p<0.01), lesser snoring (p<0.01), lesser nocturnal awakening caused by eating (p<0.01), and had poorer sleep quality than males on the night of examination (p<0.01). Gender differences in sleep habits and sleep problems were found and were different than those reported from other cultures.
