FAQ 429
I have no money. Is there emergency help available?

The Small Emergency Grant (SEG) aims to provide immediate short term funds to students in acute financial need.

You will need to prove that you have little or no funds remaining with a bank statement or cash machine advice slip. If you are visiting the AskBU team on campus - in the The Hub, Poole House (Talbot Campus) or Bournemouth Gateway Building (Lansdowne Campus), you can show the adviser your online screen balance on your phone.

You can get £20 supermarket vouchers, payable once per term.
