University of Essex Hardship Fund

Project Image

The scale and reach of COVID-19 is global and having an impact on communities all over the world, including our own student community.

The University has put in place many measures to help our students at this challenging time, however, we know there is more to do and we are asking for your help. We are committed to supporting our students who are most in need through our Hardship Fund, which will help students who are experiencing immediate difficulties as a result of the global pandemic.

The Hardship Fund will provide immediate help with unexpected financial problems, whether due to the loss of part time work; additional travel costs; access to technology; or helping to manage unexpected accommodation costs. Donations to this fund will go directly to students in need, quickly, making their lives easier and allow them to continue their education here at Essex.

We know these are very challenging times for many of us, but we would be very grateful if you do feel that you are able to, that you consider donating to the Hardship Fund.

Please get in touch with us by email to if you have any questions.

Thank you.
