In March of 2020 as a measure for the control of the coronavirus spread there was a worldwide closure of schools at all levels of education. Students and educators needed to immediately respond to the challenge of continuing the education under the new circumstances. That involved migrating all education offerings to a fully virtual environment. The migration which took place amidst the academic year proved to be very challenging in a number of ways. This paper reports on an empirical study which was completed in Cyprus and involved university students. The study surveyed the technological, economic, and psychological challenges faced by students as a result of the pandemic.
