The fund launched in 2016 in celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the Regent Street Polytechnic, the predecessor institution to the University of Westminster, with a generous matched funding offer from the Quintin Hogg Trust.
This month Booking.com has generously joined the cause, creating a unique URL to support the fund. For all finalised bookings made via Booking.com/UniversityofWestminster, they will donate a considerable part of the total cost directly to The 125 Fund and every pound donated is then matched by the Quintin Hogg Trust.
Those with ties to the University of Westminster already frequently book with Booking.com and now, the University of Westminster is one of the first Higher Education Institutions to directly benefit students through this kind of partnership with Booking.com.
With The 125 Fund all current students are eligible to apply for grants between £150 and £2,000 to help them purchase new equipment, develop a project, or to support their personal and professional development.
If you, your friends or your family are booking holidays using Booking.com please do so via Booking.com/UniversityofWestminster and help support students and the University reach our £10,000 Booking.com support target for 2017.
If you have any questions about the partnership please contact the Development team.
