New undergraduate or postgraduate students with low household income can apply for financial assistance towards equipment to support online learning.

Remote learning and virtual campuses have become an important part of life for higher education students. We appreciate that not all our students may be able to access our virtual learning spaces.

For 2020/21, we have dedicated funds to ensure that those without access to technology can apply for support towards the equipment they need to get online.

The Online Access Fund is funded by our Hardship Fund and there are a capped number of awards. We offer these on a first-come, first-served basis.

Am I eligible?

To be eligible for the Online Access Fund you will need to meet the following criteria.

  • You are a fully registered student at the University of Greenwich starting in September 2020, joining in Year 0 or Year 1.
  • You are studying at one of our campuses (Greenwich / Avery Hill / Medway).
  • Your household income is below £25,000.
  • If you are studying an undergraduate course, you will receive the full maintenance loan from Student Finance England.
  • If you are studying a postgraduate course, you will receive a postgraduate loan and you have a clear plan for paying your course costs.

You must also consent to share information with the University to verify your entitlement to the Online Access award.
