This study examines the mental health of students from Kyiv universities in the context of 21 months of the full-scale war in Ukraine. Our primary dataset is derived from an online survey. We analyze two key facets of mental health: anxiety levels and safety perception. Our findings reveal that anxiety levels among students are primarily associated with the frequency of contemplation regarding the ongoing war and their emotional responses to war-related news. Expectedly, safety perception is higher for students studying abroad during the conflict. For students who remain in Ukraine, the absence of psychological support from the university and the shift to online/mixed study formats contribute to a lower sense of safety.
