Student shopping for food

Cost of living student survey

As part of our ongoing priority to support students during the cost of living crisis, Kent Union and the University of Kent, in partnership with The Food Foundation, have joined forces to present you with the Cost of Living survey.

This survey aims to understand how the cost of living crisis has impacted you and figure out how we can best support you during your time at Kent. The information gathered will help us to 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.

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:

  • 6 x £30 Co-op gift cards
  • 1 x Meal for two at Woodys
  • 15 x £20 Kent One card credits
  • 1 x Kent hoodie from Kent Clothing
  • 1 x Free entry package for the prize winner and friends for a Venue event
  • 25 x voucher for free tea & coffee in the Library Café.

During these difficult times, it is important that your voice is heard, so we encourage you to fill out the Cost of Living survey and share it with your friends too.

Fill out the survey now.
