Financial support

Goldsmiths offers a Halls Fee Bursary to help students from low income families with accommodation costs. If you're eligble for this bursary then we will give you some money to put towards rent. This money will not have to be paid back. 

Please note that this bursary is only for UK and EU students and does not cover people living in private rented accommodation.

For further information on applying for this bursary, and other forms of financial support at Goldsmiths please contact the Student Centre. You can email them at
