General Description

The 36-item Sleep-Wake Questionnaire for University Students (SWQUC) covers demographic, sleep, academic, lifestyle, and well-being variables. The questionnaire, based on existing sleep-wake questionnaires and the clinical and educational experience of its authors, and lacking a specific instrument to access sleep-wake patterns in undergraduates, was developed for a large research project on sleep, well-being and academic success of university students. The questionnaire considers demographics, sleep-wake cycle during the semester (19 items, covering sleep duration, quality, regularity and timing), other sleep-aspects (6 items, e.g., sleep needs; room/bed conditions), and waking life (11 items, covering academic antecedents, current academic engagement, lifestyle, substance usage, and daytime subjective well-being variables).
