University dormitories provide a supportive environment, yet students encounter challenges impacting academic performance and well-being. In 2024, a web survey targeted 288 undergraduates residing in campus dorms in Vietnam. Assessing participants' characteristics, physical attributes, lifestyle patterns, and mental health status (DASS-21) revealed key insights. The findings unveiled an average of 2.9 roommates (SD = 1.41), with an average sleep duration of 6.9 hours (SD = 1.43) and a bedtime around 11:58 PM (SD = 1.29). Handheld device usage averaged 6.4 hours (SD = 3.47), and self-study hours averaged 2.9 (SD = 2.06). Self-prepared meals and out-campus breakfast were prevalent. The majority abstained from alcohol (62.4%) and tobacco (96.2%). GPA correlated with age, a smaller number of roommates, and self-study hours, with older students and those engaging in more independent study exhibiting higher GPAs. Additionally, students majoring in medicine and those in higher grades tended to have higher GPAs. Understanding dormitory challenges, including social dynamics and adjustment issues, is crucial for effective student support. These findings provide valuable insights into lifestyle, academic behaviors, and mental health, informing potential interventions aimed at enhancing student well-being and academic success.
