We are significantly expanding our work to support students in financial need.

Our hardship funds are designed to be additional to UCL’s core hardship support. With our hardship funds, we look to support students who, for whatever reason, cannot access UCL support but are in financial need - preventing them from continuing or completing their studies, or from taking part in student activities. Our additional hardship funds will be available from term one 2022.

Funding and Financial Advice


UCL Financial Assistance Funds

As a first step, students should always apply to the UCL Financial Assistance Funds, or other relevant UCL hardship support. Follow the links below to fund relevant to you:

Students' Union Financial Assistance Fund

The Sarah Douglas Hardship Fund provides support if you cannot access UCL's Financial Assistance Fund but are in financial need.

Additional Funds

Emergency Cash

Short-term loans and emergency cash is available via the links below.

Training


We have been able to extend our work on student hardship and financial support this year due to an additional grant from UCL for which we are very grateful.
