Two years since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the education in universities is still being disrupted. Prolonged exposure to the pandemic situation may result in health-related problems university students . In January 2022, we conducted an online survey in three universities in Bangladesh, Thailand and Vietnam for rapid assessment of students’ perceived impacts on health condition. We collected 160 responses from the three sites. Data were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. A third of the respondents reported that their health condition was impacted, while female students perceived more impact on health than male (p<.001). Over a half of the respondents reported experiencing some stress, while students living in dormitory had higher tendency to perceive stress (p=.040). Moreover, students in higher grade tent more to perceive stress (p=.003) and to perceive more worry for future (p=.001). There were also significant differences in the level of perceived health impact, stress and worry for future among the students from three sites, probably due the characteristics of respondents in each site. These findings imply the needs to address not only the quality of education but also to improve health support services for students in the campus.
