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.

At The Hub Basic Needs Center, 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.




The Hub Basic Needs Center addresses the gaps and concerns students have with accessing nutritious food, stable housing, and financial wellness resources. We are committed to raising awareness around the basic needs of UC San Diego students, marshaling resources so they can focus on their academic success.


We strive to increase equitable access to food, housing, and financial wellness resources for all students by breaking down barriers and transforming the UC San Diego community.

Available At The Hub

The Basic Needs Center has available toothbrush/toothpaste, hygiene kits, pads & tampons, laundry detergent pods, socks & blankets, shampoo/conditioner, soap,hats, etc. Our services are categorized by Food Security, Housing Stability, and Financial Wellness and we provide resources and support in all three.
