Hardship funding - coronavirus

Hardship funding available to support students impacted by the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic.

If you have been impacted by coronavirus then Faculties, Departments, Colleges, and central services have limited hardship funding that may be able to help you. 

The University has also been working to make available some additional hardship funding to support students at this time. 

A new Emergency Assistance Fund has been launched for Trinity term to provide short-term assistance for on-course, matriculated students whose finances have been negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Emergency Assistance grants of between £200 and £1,000 are available.

The Emergency Assistance Fund application form and guidance notes are now available to request through your college hardship officer and these will be processed on a rolling basis. 

A range of wider financial information, including details of schemes that can provide help for other reasons, is available on the Fees & Funding webpages.
