At the University of Kent we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to support you wherever we can. With the cost of living crisis, Kent Union and the University of Kent, in partnership with The Food Foundation, have launched a survey to understand how the cost of living crisis has impacted students and figure out how we can best support you during your time at Kent. The information gathered will help identify the most vulnerable groups of students and the aspects of university life you are most struggling with so we can provide you with tailored support. The results will inform the actions we need to put in place towards achieving the University of Kent’s civic mission to promote food justice, tackle food insecurity and become the world’s first Right to Food University.
You can fill out the survey here.
Taking part in this survey gives you the opportunity to enter our randomised prize draw which will take place once the survey closes. The prizes up for grabs include:
• 6x Co-op vouchers worth £30 each
• 1x Kent Clothing hooded sweatshirt
• 1x meal for 2 at Woodys
• 1x free entry package for the winner and a friend to The Venue
• 25x vouchers for a free tea or coffee at the Library Cafe
• 15x Kent One card credits worth £20 each
Your voice matters and we are here to support you throughout these difficult times.
