dc.description.abstract In a study of the experiences of loneliness and social isolation of postsecondary undergraduate students with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, 7 students with disabilities participated in phenomenological interviews to express their experiences during the pandemic. Interview data provided insight into the lived experiences of participants during the COVID-19 pandemic. Responses were analyzed using a descriptive phenomenological approach, resulting in 4 meta themes and 10 themes. Findings were discussed in relation to the developmental period of emerging adulthood and a new model for sustainable mental health proposed by Bohlmeijer and Westerhof (2021). Recommendations for the postsecondary institution attended by the participants are also discussed. en_US
