PhD fieldwork in a security red zone

I'm thinking about starting a PhD with a UK university, with fieldwork based in an area where I have previously worked. The problem is that this area is marked by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) as a security red zone, with advise against all travel. Does anyone here know if a UK university is legally allowed to support a student doing fieldwork in a red zone?
I also noticed that some funding bodies will not provide funding for research for students in these areas. Did anyone have this problem and can suggest where I could find funds?
Thanks a lot!
