The Emergency Taxi fund, funded by the AMS, was created for students with temporary mobility impairments, who require taxi assistance to and from campus and classes. Decisions on applications will generally be made within days of submitting an application and you will be notified by email. Students must submit a doctor's note with their application. Funding from the Emergency Taxi fund will be deposited directly into a student's personal bank account though Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). As such, please be sure that your banking information on SOLUS is accurate and up-to-date.
In the case of an emergency when immediate assistance is required, students should contact the Student Awards Office directly.
If you are having a temporary cash flow difficulty (e.g. your government student assistance funding is not arriving until mid-September, however you require funds now to buy books), you may wish to considered applying for a Short Term Loan. Students with temporary cash flow difficulties will not be considered for Emergency Assistance.
