Free Sanitary Products Scheme

We’re now able to offer students access to sanitary products, delivered to your home address, free of charge.

In collaboration with the University’s Department of Estates and Property Services, we have been able to utilise a Scottish Government scheme to ensure that RGU Students have increased access to free sanitary products.

It is estimated that the average woman spends around £13 a month on period products which is a huge outlay when you have a low income and levels of period poverty have surged during the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently, we have a stock of:

  • Body Form Ultra pads, normal 
  • Tampax Compak, regular, applicator tampon
  • Tampax Compak, super, applicator tampon
  • Lil-lets regular, non-applicator
  • Lil-lets super, non-applicator

These products can be ‘purchased’ free of charge, with free delivery to any UK Address.

Please note that these products are dispatched every Monday, with Sunday at 11:59pm being the deadline to order.

To find out more, please email periodpoverty@rguunion.co.uk
