The current public health emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on everyone, but it has caused particular disruption to life on university campuses and increased anxiety and distress in many college students.

As part of HMC’s ongoing research effort to better understand the longterm effects of COVID-19 and develop solutions for these institutions, we spoke with higher education clients, students, contractors, and consultants to gain insight and understanding of short-and long-term impacts of this pandemic on facility design and operation for college campuses and universities.

HMC is committed to sharing our findings with the industry in a series of white papers that focus on five main areas of Technology, Adaptability and Flexibility, Regulatory/Budgetary/Institutional Impacts, Space Needs/Reduction and Restructuring, and Impact to Wellness/Mental Health. In this paper, we discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on students’ mental health and well-being.
