A scheme which sees students in Sheffield paying a levy on their rent has helped raised more than £250,000 for homeless charities in the city.
The money is used to help people get back on their feet
Under the "Give-as-you-Rent" scheme at the University of Sheffield each student living in halls of residence gives an extra £2 per term.
The money has been used to help homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the city.
The 14-year-old scheme has already raised more than £40,000 this year.
Stella McHugh from Sheffield Volunteering said: "Sheffield, like most major cities in the UK, has problems with homelessness and inadequate housing.
"In response to these problems we launched the unique initiative to support groups working with the homeless in the city.
"Each year the initiative goes from strength to strength, with the vast majority of students living in university accommodation supporting the scheme."
