Southampton Coronavirus Response Fund

The Southampton Coronavirus Response Fund will help protect more lives – and you can help. Your support will accelerate our response to the pandemic, globally and in our own community.

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. All donations, big and 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, our academics, medics and support staff are working around the clock to deliver fast, effective solutions to 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 and we are providing a comprehensive support network to ensure they have the material and emotional help they need to get through this difficult time.


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 where it is needed most. In this fast-developing situation, we will be keeping you up to date with the continuing impact of your support.

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

If you are considering making a gift of more than £10,000, please contact our Associate Director, Development, Katherine de Retuerto, at or 023 8059 6895 or 07789 947749.
