Welcome to the
Hub Basic Needs Center
We're here to help. Watch this video to learn more about the programs and resources we provide for food security, housing resources, and financial wellness for current UC San Diego students!
We got the Basics covered!
Basic Needs refers to the most essential resources required to thrive as a student, which includes access to nutritious food, stable housing, and financial wellness resources.
At The Hub Basic Needs Center (The Hub), we provide resource referrals for registered UC San Diego students from a collective of on campus program collaborations and off-campus program partnerships in the greater San Diego area.
If you are in need of emergency Basic Needs resources, start by filling out a Basic Needs Assistance Form:
Graduate Student Housing Grant Application:
Open from 5/1-5/22
Eligibility: This application is open to all UCSD graduate students seeking assistance with housing costs/insecurity.

Basic Needs Assistance Form
If you are a UC San Diego student who is facing challenges with your access to adequate food, stable housing, or general financial resources, you're encouraged to complete this form.
