Financial Assistance Resources

There are times when an individual may need assistance to help with utility bills, rent, or emergency housing. There are several business and groups in Lexington and the surrounding area that provide information to help you make it through the difficult period. As a University of Kentucky student know that OCSS is here to help you find those resources.

Donate and Support:

Alumni, parents, students, and community members can also assist students dealing with tragedy by donating to the UK Emergancy Assistance and Relief Fund

Here’s how the fund will work:

  • The UK Emergency Assistance and Relief Fund will provide support to students facing a financial emergency or catastrophic events, which may prevent them from continuing their education.
  • The fund also will support volunteer humanitarian and outreach work by students, faculty, and staff who want to work in areas affected by natural disasters and other catastrophic events. 

We will be utilizing this fund and resources throughout our campus to help students in a time of need.
