Emergency Aid Fund

main content

The Student Financial Support Team have a short-term, interest-free emergency loan facility to assist in cases of serious, immediate financial hardship. You can borrow up to a maximum of £100 per day (more in some cases), up to a total of £350. 

Repayment of the loan is normally set to coincide with your next student loan, stipend or wages.  It is important that loans are repaid by the agreed date so that we can continue to assist other students in financial difficulty.  

Please note that you will not be permitted to graduate if you have any outstanding debts to the University  

If you would like to access a loan from the Emergency Aid Fund please visit our Advice Centre, Level 1, McCance Building during our drop in times which are Monday to Friday 2pm to 4pm.  

Please note that loans cannot be processed after 3.45pm. 

Alternatively, you can email financial-support@strath.ac.uk for further details.
