Support students through hardship

Project Image

Northumbria University’s Hardship Fund helps to relieve financial hardship that impacts on a student’s ability to study and participate in higher education.

The Fund supports students who are experiencing unexpected or unforeseen financial difficulties through the provision of funding towards the cost of accommodation, food, childcare and learning resources/digital equipment. The funding enables students to concentrate upon their studies, without the worry of being unable to afford their basic living costs.

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and other supporters, we have been able to make a real difference to the lives of many students across the Northumbria University community.
