Green space vital to student wellbeing during COVID-19 pandemic

Greenspace use was linked to group membership and social support, suggesting that during strict social restrictions these areas promoted social connectedness. Greenspace was also linked to physical activity, demonstrating benefits to physical and mental wellbeing. The team suggest promoting the use of greenspace for students as a way to improve wellbeing, particularly in times when social interaction is restricted or limited. “With the Spring season approaching, I encourage our students to make time to go outside and enjoy the free benefits to your wellbeing! Our campus and surrounding spaces are all beautiful, Valley Gardens is a particularly nice place for a coffee or a break from study.”
