Here to help with the cost of living

Coming to university is an investment in your future, but the fast rise in the cost of living, with increases in food, travel and other essentials means it can be a challenging time to balance spending.

Preparing how you will manage your money can make your student life easier. We offer a wide range of advice on how to fund your studies and manage your budget whilst you are here.

We are always looking into additional ways we can help support our students. In 2023, we launched a Leeds Trinity benefits package, to help our current student meet the cost of essentials.

Planning your income and budgeting

If you’re a UK full-time undergraduate student, you can get useful tips on planning your sources of income and managing your budget for student life. Support is also available through our Money Advice Service Team who will help you manage your budget and help you with any concerns you may have about debt or meeting your housing costs. Or you can speak to us on Live Chat using the button in the bottom right of your screen.
