From Monday 7 November – Friday 11 November 2022 the King’s Student Money Mentors will be running a weeklong campaign for Talk Money Week providing you with information and support on bills, banking and ways to make money.

Talk Money Week happens every year to encourage people to open up about their finances and there are a range of activities across King's to get involved in.


Cost of living support

With the rising cost of living, as a student you may be concerned about what this will mean for household bills, food and travel costs.

Visit our cost of living pages to find a range of support on offer for you to access.

Who are the Student Money Mentors?

Our Money Mentors are current King’s students who are passionate about sharing their experiences of living on a student budget, offering money saving tips and hosting events across the year.
