Extra (financial) assistance

Studying involves costs. Sometimes a scholarship from the Flemish government can cover the costs but this is not always the case. Some students are not entitled to a scholarship. The student services department (STUVO) tries to help in different ways. Find out how!

    Borrow a laptop

    If you need a laptop for very short notice (e.g., an exam on campus), you can get one through the AVM lending service.

    In need for a long-term rental laptop? Then take a look at "An (additional) grant from STUVO" and submit your application!

    The Social Grocer

    A Social Grocer is a store where you can purchase healthy food and quality products at cheaper rates (or for free). You will find a range of both fresh and packaged food, household and personal care products.

    You can't just walk into a Social Grocery store freely, you usually need a referral form. Together we will see if you can claim the Social Grocer within your area.

    Free menstrual products

    Since 2021, free menstrual products are available on every campus. One or more restrooms on each campus will have lockers filled with free pads and tampons. The lockers will be freely accessible and located in a place where the student who needs it can take the material freely and discreetly. More detailed info can be found in this news-item: Menstruation Poverty.
