Emergency loans

If you experience a sudden unexpected emergency that requires money you don’t have to hand immediately but you are otherwise able to support yourself financially, we may be able to help.

Short-term cash loans are available, normally on the day you make your request.

We do not charge interest on university loans, unlike commercial lenders.

The sums available are relatively small and must normally be paid back in six weeks or less. The loan becomes a debt to the university.

To speak to someone about a loan, you can come to the Student Services Centre in the Tawney Building during any of the drop in sessions. Alternatively, if it is the first time you have taken a loan you can attend the centre at any time.
