Support the Coronavirus Response Fund

Southampton is a world leader in respiratory medicine and microbial science, and a proud supporter of our students in times of crisis. From developing potential vaccines to creating innovative support technology, funding additional medical staff, and providing vital assistance to vulnerable students in need, you will be supporting a multitude of critical projects. Your donations, big or small will make a difference and enable us to do more.

As the world faces an unprecedented medical, social and financial emergency, universities like Southampton are playing a leading role in tackling the relentless march of the coronavirus. Whilst many of us are confined to our homes, hoping that loved ones stay safe, medics, academics and support staff are working around the clock on the front lines. Your generosity will help them to deliver fast, effective solutions and protect more lives.

We are also going to great lengths to care for the students that remain in our care. A significant number of UK and International students have not been able to return home. Your support will allow us to provide a comprehensive support network, and ensure they have the material and emotional help they need to get through this difficult time.

Join us in the fight against this pandemic

If you are in a position to help, please know that a gift of any size will make a difference. Our Southampton Coronavirus Response Fund will be used by the University to support our cutting-edge medical research and ensure front-line staff, researchers and students are protected. In this fast-developing situation, we will be keeping you up to date with the continuing impact of your support.

Please join fellow alumni, friends and supporters to tackle this with pace and determination. Together, you can and will make a difference.
