The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship and difference between exercise habits, sleep score, and sleep duration in different academic college students. 1064 college students including 656 junior college students with mean age 16.71±0.81 years and 408 college students with mean age 19.25±0.68 years. Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) was used and data were analyzed by SPSS for window 18.0, descriptive statistics, Chi-square test, two independent sample t-tests, and Pearson Relationship Index. The significance difference α=.05. The results showed: (1) There is a significant difference (P＜.05) in the frequency of weekly exercise and sports in different academic students. (2) The ratio of the overweight (BMI24) was significantly higher and less frequency of weekly exercise in sleep score (PSQI＞5) group. (3) The ratio of exercise habit was higher (78.39%) and more frequency of weekly exercise (2.15±1.72) in sleep hours＞7 hrs group. (4) The higher BMI has a higher sleep score, sleeping late, less exercise frequency, and shorter sleep duration. Conclusion: Sleep quality of male students was better than female students. BMI and sleep duration, body composition, and exercise habits have a significantly difference. The regular exercise and sleep habits can increase sleep duration.
