The COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia has encouraged every university to implement the Online-Learning method. However, this learning method might impact on quality of life of some students. Students may experience a lack of social support and have a poor quality of life. They tend to have difficulty completing their studies and are vulnerable to psychological problems. This study aims to describe the level of social support and quality of life of students involved in the Online-Learning method. This study recruited 263 students lived in Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi. The participants completed an online questionnaire measuring social support (Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support; MSPSS) and quality of life (World Health Organization Quality of Life; WHOQOL-BREF). The results show that 67.7% of students get moderate social support. Significant others and friends are the most contributing aspect of social support of students during Online-Learning. This study found that 66.2% of students have a fairly good quality of life. The quality of the relationship with the environment is dominating the perceived quality of life. Further research can deepen the quality of life perceived by students through qualitative research to get a deeper picture of this.
