Students studying at university can have different living costs depending on where and what they will be studying, their lifestyle and any financial commitments they might have.
If you have concerns or questions about tuition fees, funding, and the rising cost of living, we advise that you visit Firstpoint either by telephone or in the Peirson building on St John’s Campus and book an appointment with a money advisor.
Money advisors can talk about:
How are the Students’ Union supporting students with the rising cost of living?
Access to Learning fund
Students can book an appointment with an advisor to support them in making an application for the Access to Learning Fund. The Access to Learning Fund form can be found here.
Food Bank Referrals
If you can’t find what you need in the community cupboard, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and an advisor will contact you about a referral to the Foodbank.
Free period products
We offer free period products and condoms to all students at the University of Worcester.
We have a community cupboard at St John’s campus (located opposite the Students’ Union toilets) where students can collect food and personal care items for free Monday – Friday between 10am and 4:30pm.
