Important Infomation


Cost of Living Crisis

Here at the Students Union, we are aware of the current Cost of Living crisis and how this will impact our students. For this reason, we have chosen this to be one of our campaigns over this academic year.

We have been working on this project since the summer and have put an action plan together detailing how we can support our students throughout this crisis. Our plan includes:

  • Cost-of-Living Breakfast each week on Singleton and Bay campuses
  • Food Bank initiative to support students struggling with the rising cost of food
  • Sports Hardship Fund to ensure finance isn't a barrier for students to participate in sports
  • Societies Hardship Fund to ensure all students can access our societies
  • Funding for our Study Aid campaign to help students through assessment periods
  • Period Poverty support for our students experiencing menstruation

What we do

This year we will be campaigning to our university and local government to better support our students with the rising fuel, energy, and food costs. We are committed to working towards the improvement of our students' lives throughout the academic year and believe that our students should have a positive university experience despite the Cost of Living crisis.

We run a Cost of Living Breakfast on the Singleton and Bay campuses - Tuesdays 9:30am Y Twyni, Bay Campus & Thursdays 9:30am JCs, Singleton Campus. 

Our Food Bank runs each Friday from 2:30pm in the Faraday Foyer, Faraday Building, Singleton Campus.
