Our continuing work on the cost of living
A university cost of living steering group was launched last year, bringing together Students’ Union officers, student experience and wellbeing experts, and university leadership. This group continues to work on exploring and developing initiatives to further support students.
We'll also be continuing to work with other universities to ensure the UK government are aware of students' financial needs during a time of rising costs – and encouraging them to act.
