Financial Security

Post-secondary education is expensive.

Let SAMRU help you with the burden with one of our financial security programs, available to all credit students.

SAMRU also gives out over $40,000 annually in awards and bursaries. Visit the SAMRU Awards and Experiential Learning Fund pages for details on how to apply!


Emergency Bus Tickets

In an emergency (e.g. forgot or lost wallet), we give students two bus tickets per day to a maximum of eight tickets per semester in the Fall and Winter. Max four tickets per semester in Spring and Summer.

Emergency Student Funds

SAMRU can provide interest-free loans to students in need during emergency situations. Our services are confidential and free of charge. If you would like to request emergency funds, please visit the Peer Support Centre (Z210) during office hours to fill out an application with one of our volunteers.

Mount Caring

Mount Caring, SAMRU’s holiday support program, is a barrier-free service for all Mount Royal students feeling the holiday stress. Students can apply through the Peer Support Centre (Z210) in November to receive gift cards for themselves and dependents, if any.
