Take the UCLA loneliness test

By Adrian 09 May 2022

Researchers studying loneliness may use the UCLA Loneliness Scale. It's a very quick, three-question test.

You can take the test here. 

It's available for one week only as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Results from the test will help us to understand how prevalent loneliness is amongst students.

Loneliness is common, but it's different for everyone. Being alone doesn't necessarily mean that you're lonely; and having a busy social life doesn't always mean that you're not lonely. You could use the opportunity of taking this UCLA Loneliness Scale test to reflect on your experience - and use the tips at the end of the test to help manage any feelings of loneliness.

If you're looking for support now, check out our student wellbeing and support hub.
