The university has made an agreement with its main accommodation provider to provide a payment on behalf of all students in the halls
Salford University has worked with the Students’ Union to put together a Covid Assistance Fund to support those students living in both halls and privately owned accommodation, with up to £1,200 up for grabs per student.
Students living in private accommodation or private housing will be eligible for £1,000 each out of the support fund to help them pay their rent during the third lockdown.
The University of Salford’s Covid Assistance Fund “has been established to support students living in halls and in privately owned accommodation with the cost of rent, as well as for students with financial issues not related to rent.”
The university has made an agreement with Campus Living Village, the university’s main accommodation provider to provide a payment on behalf of all students in the halls. For the time being, CLV has paused all rental payments until a later date.
For those students living in John Lester and Eddie Coleman accommodation, the value of £1,000 per student will be added to their account and for students in Peel Park Quarter, they will receive £1,200.
Students living in private accommodation will also be able to apply for support funding up to the value of £1,000. The applications opened on the 18th January and will remain open until the 29th.
Students will also be able to apply for the Covid Assistance Fund for all other financial needs that need support at this time.
A spokesperson for the University of Salford said: The Rent Relief Fund is provided by the University and is used to assist students who are experiencing financial difficulties relating to term-time accommodation rental costs as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and January 2021 national lockdown.
