New Hardship Fund that CAN be used on Rent
Last week the government announced that they were pledging an additional £50 million worth of hardship funding to Universities. For Huddersfield this equates to approximately £600,000 for our students. This funding can be used on rent if you have not been able to live in your University Accommodation this term or if you are living there but you are finding yourself in financial hardship.
However, you must act quickly as the money has to be distributed by the end of March!
If you think you qualify you can apply for the funding here – https://students.hud.ac.uk/help/finance/learning-fund/
