Coronavirus - Financial Assistance

The Financial Support Office can assist students in urgent need of funding to help with specific costs arising from coronavirus.

These costs may be associated with:

  • loss of income which is affecting your ability to cover your maintenance costs;
  • emergency travel to your permanent home;
  • purchase of a laptop to access remote teaching and online assessment.

We have hardship funds available to help both undergraduate and graduate students who are unable to cover their costs from other sources.

If you are facing financial difficulties as a result of coronavirus please email us in the first instance at financial-support@lse.ac.uk. We will respond to your email within 24 hours and advise you on the most appropriate source of funding for you.

You may be asked to complete the In Course Financial Hardship form. Once the form is completed, please send it to the Financial Support Office by email.

We have arranged to make hardship payments via BACS for the remainder of this academic year.
