Being a lecturer and educational staffs are a noble task because they aimed to build a greater young generation for the nation, so that their welfare should be well-attended. Well-being or is divided into two types, which are objective well-being (OWB) and subjective well-being (SWB). This is a descriptive survey research and focused more on SWB. The respondent criteria were lecturer and educational staff at the EB and P faculty, thus obtaining 74 respondents. The scale used in this study is SWB scale adapted from the Subjective Well-Being Inventory (SUBI) (Nagpal & Sell, 1992), using an interval scale, and presented in statements. Examining the results, it can be seen that more than half (71.62%) of the respondents considered that their life had been positive, both physically and mentally, which was indicated by a high SWB level. As many as 20 respondents (27.03%) were at moderate level, and only 1.35% or 1 respondent had a low SWB level. Perceived ill-health dimension is the most contributor to the low level of SWB, which related to physical complaints experienced by individuals, such as pain, a racing heart, frequent dizziness, easily tired, sleep disturbed, and worrying about their health.
