Community Living is hosting a Cost of Living Fair!

Monday 6th February from 11am-4pm in the Great Hall

There will be free refreshments and other items we’ll be giving away to attendees!

There will be stallholders from University services and Birmingham City Council to share what is available to help you through the crisis.

The Cost of Living crisis has had a big impact on the student experience and we want to help! Find out more about the support UoB has on offer

The Guild of Students will also be present to host a Clothing Swap!

If you have an item you no longer wear, why not donate it? Simply bring along an item of clothing and exchange it for something else that’s been pre-loved. Items must be clean and in good condition.

We’ll also have a series of live talks in Aston Webb G33!
