We Get 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.

The Hub is a new UC San Diego space that offers students the opportunity to engage in and link to Basic Needs resources. We are open as of Winter Quarter 2018!

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.

Are you interested in learning more about Basic Needs insecurity? Find out what UC San Diego is doing and how YOU, whether staff, faculty, student, or community member can support the cultivation of a Basic Needs secure campus community.
