YSJ Larder

YSJ Larder provides food, vouchers, toiletries and cleaning products to all students in financial difficulties.

Entrance to Holgate Student Centre

The YSJ Larder in Holgate provides non-perishable foods, supermarket vouchers, toiletries and household cleaning products free of charge to students and postgraduate researchers throughout term time.

We have invested significantly in an increased range and quantity of supplies. All students facing cost of living challenges are welcome and can pick up 1 pre-packed bag of items and 1 supermarket voucher to access fresh produce each week.

Opening times - term time only

The larder is open at the following dates and times during term time:

  • Tuesday: 8.30am to 12.30pm
  • Thursday: 1.00pm to 5.00pm

YSJ Larder is located near the Information Desk in the Holgate building on our Lord Mayor's Walk campus. It is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students. You will need to provide your student ID card upon arrival.

Please contact the Student Funding Advice team at if you have any questions.

If you are not living in York you can use a food bank local to you. To find the nearest one to you, please visit the Trussell Trust website.
