Our Subsidy Arrangements

As a charity, Unipol subsides the cost of family housing to provide lower rents because it recognises that the high accommodation costs are a barrier to individuals with children or dependants undertaking study. This is an important part of Unipol’s charitable mission, and more information is available here.
