Emergency Hardship Loan

An Emergency Hardship Loan or EHL is a loan from the university for those experiencing short term financial problems. Unlike payday loans or unauthorised overdrafts it attracts no interest or charges.

The loan is intended to cover your essential needs such as food and travel and will need to be repaid to the University. You will agree a repayment date with your adviser at the same time as you agree the loan.

We can provide you with an Emergency Hardship Loan up to £250 depending on need.
