The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

We offer a wide range of support for care leavers through our Student Life Centre. We have a team of specialist staff who can give you advice on a variety of subjects including housing and financial support. You can arrange to meet with any one of us in person, or contact us by telephone or email with any questions you have.

We offer guaranteed all year round accommodation to care leavers in our halls of residence, Horton Halls. For more information about Horton Halls please visit https://www.sgul.ac.uk/study/accommodation.

We encourage you to contact Jude as soon as possible in the Admissions process so that we can ensure you are put in touch with the relevant support staff, make sure you've got everything you're entitled to, and you have all the information you need early on. Don't worry if you're reading this after you have started your course – you can make contact at any time. If you indicate on your UCAS application that you have experience of care we will be in touch with you over the summer, but please don't hesitate to get in touch earlier if you have any questions.
