Description: 

Update 26 March: UCL has now set up a new fund designed to provide Emergency Assistance Grants for financial difficulties arising from Coronavirus issues. Awards will not normally exceed £500 and will be allocated on a case-by-case basis.

Costs that the fund may be able to help with include:

  • Travel back to your permanent home
  • Purchase of a laptop in order to access remote teaching and learning, or to continue with research remotely
  • Unforeseen accommodation costs where you have had to move to different housing

If the financial support you are looking for relates to needs you have in Term 3, you should consider applying to the Financial Assistance Fund for a full means-tested assessment. This fund is there to assist students with unexpected living costs, but all students experiencing financial difficulty are encouraged to apply.


16 March: Many of our students rely on income from employment to sustain themselves. We’re investigating how students can access financial support and hardship funds.
