The Student Basic Needs department fosters a culture of holistic well-being by helping to eliminate life barriers, such as food, housing, and economic injustice, that may jeopardize student academic and personal success.
They support students by developing initiatives, streamlining communication with campus partners, and connecting students to campus and community resources.
Student Basic Needs offers food support through supplemental assistance including the Trojan Food Pantry and the Swipe Out Hunger program. Our goal is to guarantee that every student is food secure, meaning students have access to nutritious options without limitations.
Student Basic Needs offers housing support by assisting students to secure and maintain suitable housing or shelter in the Los Angeles area.
Student Basic Needs offers economic support for students experiencing financial insecurity of having stable and predictable income to support a standard living.
