Hardship Funding and Emergency Loans

Due to the University Easter closure we are expecting the next payment run for Hardship awards and Welfare Loans to be on the 16th April. This will mean that any payments made will not arrive with you until the 19th April at the earliest.

It is essential that you arrive at University having made arrangements to secure the necessary financial support to fund you throughout your studies. However we understand that during the pandemic and at other times you may experience unforeseen financial expenses and a reduction in anticipated income to meet your essential costs. In these cases financial support may be available to help you continue your studies.

The University of Sussex and our donors are committed to supporting students in financial distress and hope the help we provide will enable you to make the most of your studies and time here at Sussex even during difficult times.
