This study aims to determine well-being and stress among architecture students at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand during the Covid-19 crisis. The online questionnaires were distributed among 120 architecture students, and the interviews were conducted via Zoom in May 2022. The obtained data were analyzed using SPSS29 software, correlation analysis, and factorial ANOVA analysis of the relationship between the stressors and stress factors. During the past three months before the final project presentation, 80% of respondents spent time studying and screen time more than 7 hours while sleeping only 4-5 hours daily. During lockdown, stress levels increased because architecture students prolonged their screen time and social isolation. A total of 15 critical factors affecting architecture students' stress levels were determined: intensive academic work, difficulty of work, time limitation, and afraid of not being good enough or failing, only study and abusive critics were the most critical stressors. The most common physical health problems are office syndrome and computer vision syndrome. The most common mental health problems are sleep deprivation, burnout, anxiety, and depression. The results show that mental health issues have become common and critical among architecture students, associated with stressful learning environments rather than personal relationships, covid-19, or economic problems. The discussion and result would provide recommendations toward better sustainable life-long learning in architecture education.
