UCL has taken the decision to reinstate its rent guarantor scheme.

We listened carefully to the concerns that were raised about the potential impact on some of our students and after further reviewing the decision to suspend the scheme, it has now been re-opened. 

Any costs for registering on the scheme will remain the same for the students, however a tightened eligibility criteria and terms and conditions will be introduced. The changes were made following consultations with the Students' Union. Applications will open from Thursday 27 August through our online application form. 

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, UCL’s priority is to support our students as best as we can. The safety, welfare and wellbeing of our students and staff remain our highest priority. 

The university’s full range of support and wellbeing services, including financial assistance, are also still available to all of our students. You can access this support anytime via our student enquiries service askUCL.
