A growing body of studies has found the COVID-19 pandemic to have an overwhelmingly negative effect on college students’ mental health. More specifically, increased levels of anxiety, depression and stress have been reported by students as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures. Requested by rector Pauwels, this project examined the current wellbeing of VUB students and estimate the number of students with poor subjective wellbeing.
