If you have an unexpected financial emergency and you are at risk of leaving your studies, please contact the Student Welfare Advice Team (SWAT) for an appointment.
The Living Costs Fund will open for applications from November 2023.
The Living Costs Fund (LCF) is designed to provide a safety net to help you to continue to study as you adjust to higher living costs.
The fund can help you with your most immediate need with a voucher or money that you can use to buy some food, toiletries or pay all or part of a bill or childcare costs.
The fund is open to all enrolled students, or those retaking modules this year. Money or vouchers do not need to be repaid.
If you need emergency food, want to make a food donation or are interested in volunteering, find your nearest Trussell Trust food bank using our map.
