Help support students facing hardship due to Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused severe hardship for many students, particularly those who have lost their jobs that were supporting them through their studies.

The campus went into lockdown in March, with all teaching and learning resources being moved online.

Thanks to generous donations from alumni, staff and friends, Goldsmiths launched the Covid-19 Online Learning Access Fund to enable students to continue their learning online.

The fund provided over 300 students in financial hardship with grants of up to £300 for a laptop and/or up to £120 for six months broadband.

There was high demand, but thanks to the support of alumni, staff and friends we were able to respond quickly and ensure there was no interruption in learning.

When the autumn term begins we will deliver a mixture of in-person and online learning. We are committed to offering our students the best possible support in response to the ongoing situation around Covid-19.

More students will need help with the cost of a laptop and/or broadband. Any student facing financial hardship due to Covid-19 can apply to the Student Hardship Fund for support.

If you are able to give a donation to the Covid-19 appeal your support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you from everyone at Goldsmiths for supporting our students.
