The Autumn Semester is now well and truly underway and I hope it is going well for you and that you feel as though you are in the swing of university life. It’s been a few weeks, so I thought it was time to give you an update on what your Students’ Union is doing to support you through the Cost of Living Crisis. We know this is impacting a lot of you now, especially as we are moving into the colder, darker months and electricity is becoming a larger burden.

We are continuing the measures I mentioned in the previous email and have some additional measures too! We really appreciate all the feedback you have shared with us so far, but please keep talking to us as your opinions provide us with the evidence we need to lobby the university.

Help and advice

If you are impacted by the Cost of Living Crisis and you would like to speak to someone, we have a Student Advice Service based on the third floor of the Students’ Union.

We know that worrying about money can be high on students' agendas. Our Student Advice team can help you safeguard your academic interests if you are managing difficult personal circumstances, and can offer advice relating to housing or your wellbeing.

Mae Semester yr hydref wedi hen ddechrau ac rwy’n gobeithio bod popeth yn iawn a’ch bod wedi addasu’n llwyddiannus i fywyd prifysgol. Mae ychydig wythnosau wedi pasio, felly credaf ei bod yn amser i roi’r wybodaeth ddiweddaraf ichi am yr hyn y mae eich Undeb Myfyrwyr yn ei wneud i’ch cefnogi drwy’r Argyfwng Costau Byw. Rydyn ni'n gwybod bod hyn yn effeithio ar lawer ohonoch chi nawr, yn enwedig gan ein bod ni'n symud i'r misoedd oerach, tywyllach a bod trydan yn dod yn fwy o faich.

Rydym yn parhau â'r mesurau y soniais amdanynt yn yr e-bost blaenorol ac mae gennym rai mesurau ychwanegol hefyd! Rydym yn gwerthfawrogi’n fawr yr holl adborth rydych wedi’i rannu â ni hyd yn hyn, ond cofiwch barhau i siarad â ni gan fod eich barn yn darparu tystiolaeth angenrheidiol er mwyn lobïo’r brifysgol.
