Support for Staff and Students

Queen’s University has announced a multi-million support package of £7.69 million for students and staff facing the current cost of living crisis.

As students and staff face into a winter of financial uncertainty, it has been our priority to develop a series of measures to support the Queen’s community during the escalating crisis.

We will continue to develop additional proposals to support both students and staff through the cost of living crisis and we will announce further interventions in due course.
