10 FREE Date Ideas for College Couples During Covid-19

Covid-19 has changed our world. Businesses, health, and relationships have suffered. Romantic relationships can be hard and become boring due to the lack of available activities. Especially if you’re low on cash, like most college students. So, here’s 10 FREE things you can do as a college couple during COVID-19 to keep romance alive!

1. Have a Game or Puzzle Night

But for real. Play checkers, chess, connect-4, card games, do a puzzle, play video games, even build with lego’s!

2. Go Geocaching

Get in the car and go! This scavenger hunt style adventure is sure to beat Netflix on the couch.

3. Have a Spa Night

Put on some music, turn down the lights, everyone loves a good spa night (males included!) Here are some basic ideas:

  • Basic nail care (trim and file your nails, clip your cuticles)
  • Face masks- I like this brand a lot!
  • Hot towels
  • Tweeze your brows- I think these are really cute!
  • Lotion
  • Back, foot, or full body massages…

4. Attend College Organized Activities

Most colleges have weekly organized activities. Look on their website- you might find free movies, food, crafts, and more fun things!

5. Have a Starlight Picnic

Nothing is more romantic than a picnic under the stars! Find a local spot, or just sit down on the lawn! Blankets, twinkling lights, food, cuddling… so romantic.

Tip: Use this special Picnic Backpack and Blanket to really set the night up for success!


6. Compete in a Library Scavenger Hunt

Pre-select around 10 books (probably an odd number so you don’t tie), go to your college’s library, and let the hunt begin! Bonus: check one out and read it together.

7. Make a Time Capsule

Put in photos, print out a playlist, use business cards from your favorite places. Write a letter for each other to open when you dig it up.

8. Learn a Tik Tok Dance

If you’re into Tik Tok, this is a great way to have fun and get moving as a couple. Imagine the people you’ll impress! Or you could just keep it to yourself.

9. Teach Each Other How to Do Something

Put some effort into actually planning a night in the bedroom. You’re only in college once (typically). Don’t be afraid to be adventurous and try new things! And um.. don’t forget to use protection.
