COVID-19 Student Crisis Support Fund

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted the world in ways we could have never imagined. Right now, an increasing number of University of Liverpool students are facing substantial worries trying to make ends meet.

Many of our students have lost part-time jobs or internships which they relied on to cover their living costs. Others are unable able to travel home, remaining in halls of residence away from their loved ones. Some students now have additional caring responsibilities for affected family members.

For some, reaching out for help from family or friends is not an option.

More and more students are facing unexpected financial hardship through no fault of their own.  As a result of this, the University of Liverpool has launched a dedicated COVID-19 Student Crisis Support Fund, as part of the wider COVID-19 Emergency Response Campaign to ensure that no student is left behind.

Your support is crucial

Through the COVID-19 Student Crisis Support Fund, you can provide a lifeline for both home and international students who are most in need, ensuring they get the support they urgently need as quickly as possible.

Without this vital support, there is a real threat that our most vulnerable students may need to defer or discontinue their studies. We need your help so can we can continue to provide support to every student who needs it.

There is still much uncertainty in the world, but what we do know is that the impact of COVID-19 will be felt for weeks and years to come. We are committed to helping every student at Liverpool reach their full potential. Your support is needed now more than ever.

Make your gift go further

Any gift, regardless of size will make a difference to a student who is in need.

  • A gift of £25 could support a student’s essentials shop
  • A gift of £50 could cover an outstanding utility bill
  • A gift of £300 could cover the cost of study equipment, for students who have no access to their own.

Monthly donations: The number of students who are in need is rising. Please consider making a regular gift to allow us to plan ahead and provide long-term support to our most vulnerable students.

Thanks to the generous support from Santander as well as a generous legacy gift, we are able to match-fund your gift, making your gift go further. The collective generosity of our alumni and friends is what helps shape Liverpool for future generations.

Make a gift to the COVID-19 Student Crisis Support Fund today.

I lost my part-time job due to COVID-19 and my parents were affected too. Because of this, I am have a lot of worries about how I am going to support myself financially during this time. Unfortunately, this is directly affecting my marks as I am not able to focus on my studies as much as I would like.
