    Introduction: Sleep is an essential daily requirement, absence of which has serious physiological consequences. Getting enough sleep is an underestimated but critical part of learning. Too little sleep can lead to an increase in body weight by changing levels of the hormones that control satiety and hunger, resulting in overeating, overweight, and obesity. The aim of this study is to study and compare the sleeping patterns of BDS and management students. Materials and Methods: This is a questionnaire-based study. An online form is circulated among 100 BDS and 100 Management students which will include questions regarding the sleeping habits of an individual and the factors that affect it. Students answer this online questionnaire enquiring their sleeping patterns and the reasons for their irregular sleeping pattern. Results are obtained using proper statistical methods, and the sleep pattern of students is studied. Result: In general, it was observed that management students had a more sufficient sleep cycle than BDS students. A larger proportion of management students slept for more than 8 h, and their main cause for late-bed timing was watching movies and listening to music whereas BDS students had a smaller sleep-span and spent more time studying late into the night. Conclusion: BDS students followed a more stressful sleep cycle than management students. Thus, the sleeping pattern of management students, though disrupted, is better cycle than that of BDS students.
