Over the last couple of months, we’ve been working with the Students’ Union to bring you extra support with the rising costs of living. There’s been lots going on, so we’ve recapped the offer below to make sure you don’t miss out:
- Two weeks ago, we announced our one-off payment for students. You should have received a further email about what you need to do to claim your payment: This includes making sure you update your UK mobile phone number on the student system by 7 December, and opening a UK bank account if you don’t already have one. Find out more here.
- Back in October we set up dedicated warm spaces on campus for you to hang out, study and relax in. Our five cosy campus spaces are equipped with microwaves, hot water and heating so you don’t have to spend money at home
- We’ve also made it easier to apply to our Cost of Living Support Fund, which is open to all students experiencing unexpected financial hardship, for grants between £250 to £2000
We understand that the cost of living crisis is ongoing, and we’ll be continuing to develop our support offer through the year. You can find full details about all the support on offer, including the Students’ Union offer, on our Cost of Living webpages.
