To support care experienced and estranged students with their applications to Your Guarantor, and as part of the University of Nottingham's Stand Alone Pledge, we have arranged to pay associated application charges for students who qualify. Please note that your tenancy should be for a maximum of 12 months and up to a maximum limit of £1083 per calendar month (£250 per week).
How to apply for support with Your Guarantor charges
You can apply to us prior to securing accommodation in order to check that you would qualify for support in advance of house-hunting, alternatively apply as soon as you know that your chosen accommodation provider requires a guarantor.
Your Guarantor Support Application Form
Please allow up to five working days for your application to be reviewed, we will then confirm by email if we are able to assist. If approved please email us upon completion of the Your Guarantor application so that we can liaise with them directly with regard to payment of your fees.
