This study investigated the association between place attachment and locus of control in students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, it examined how students’ attachments to Brescia University College and London, Ontario predicted internal versus external locus of control, the link between year of study and attachment to Brescia and London, and the correlation between students’ attachments to London and their hometown. A sample of 20 students completed questionnaires which measured attachment to Brescia, attachment to London, attachment to hometown, and locus of control. Brescia attachment and London attachment were not found to be significant predictors of locus of control and there was no significant difference in attachment to Brescia and London between first and upper-year students. Hometown attachment and London attachment were not significantly correlated. Future research should investigate links between place attachment and locus of control in students with a larger sample size.
