Abstract—Over the past decades, fundamental change in underlying beliefs and theories in the context of teaching and learning has prompted invigorating consensus amongst researchers that happiness or subjective well-being (SWB) amongst the students could stimulate and incite students’ motivation and engagement in the classroom context. However, in the same disposition, it is also claimed that positive relational maintenance with both lecturers and peers is deemed as one of the key sources of happiness in which instrumental support, social and emotional development exist. With the aim to probe on the correlation between subjective well-being and student-lecturer relationship as well as student-peer relationship, this study employed a survey questionnaire to determine the imminent issues linking the concept of well-being and positive relational maintenance in the context of teaching and learning. The correlation analysis showed that there is a significant positive association, not only between student-lecturer relationship and SWB, but also between student-peer relationship and SWB.
