Care leavers and estranged students

We're committed to supporting students who

  • have been in care at any time before starting university
  • are estranged from their immediate family

Please provide details on your accommodation application form. Disclosing if you’re a care leaver allows us to offer advice and support which might include

  • helping you find a suitable place to live throughout the whole calendar year
  • providing you with a dedicated member of staff to help with various aspects of your student life
  • guiding you to relevant support programmes

We know that students with little or no family support could benefit from accessing support within the University and that you often face additional challenges whilst at university. 

For more information please visit our student support pages or email the care leave coordinator at

Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme

The Unite Foundation offers a limited number of scholarships to care leavers and estranged students studying at Hallam. The scholarship funds accommodation for three years of undergraduate study to students aged 25 or under who are estranged from family or care leavers.
