Food aid

Because maintaining a healthy lifestyle should not be sacrificed for the sake of other basic expenses, ULiège is committed to structuring, consolidating and raising the profile of on- and off-campus food aid schemes and networks.

In addition to the various catering outlets for students offered on campus, there are a number of assistance measures for students experiencing financial difficulties in obtaining basic food and hygiene products.

Student grocery store

WHO IS IT FOR? For students who are going through a difficult financial period and are therefore finding it difficult to eat a balanced and healthy diet.

WHAT? The student grocery store of the Pôle Académique Liège-Luxembourg "Le Kotidien" offers you a solution based on solidarity. "Le Kotidien" will enable you to obtain everyday consumer products (food and sanitary products) free of charge or at a lower price than the market price.


  • Present your student card
  • Sign an affidavit upon enrolment attesting to a difficult and delicate financial situation

Meal vouchers


  • Students receiving scholarships and those benefiting from reduced tuition fees can receive 10meal vouchersworth a total of €40, once a month.
  • Students receiving financial assistance from the student social service can ask their social worker for 20 meal vouchers per month, to be set aside.

IMPORTANT! If you do not meet the above conditions but find yourself in a delicate financial situation, we invite you to contact our department to request a meeting with a social worker.

HOW DO I APPLY? By reserving meal vouchers via an online form which will be available from April 2. You will then need to go to the Student Social Service (SSE) office during office hours* during the month in question. As stock is limited, the reservation form will no longer be accessible once this limit has been reached.
