When to Reach Out to a Student Basic Needs Staff Member
  • You or a fellow student are having trouble fulfilling their basic requirements due to a lack of access to adequate food, secure housing, or general financial resources.
  • You or a fellow student who, although not experiencing a crisis, would still profit from more assistance and information. 
Steps That a Student Basic Needs Staff Member Could Take 
  • Arrange one-on-one meetings with students who need help with basic necessities.
  • Collaborate as required with other campus departments, including Financial Aid, Academic Advising, Student Conduct, Health Services, and Counseling Services, among others.
  • Assist students in obtaining the most ideal campus and community support services to address their specific areas of concern. 
  • Establish links to relevant on- and off-campus resources

We can customize presentations regarding our services and resources as well as strategies to assist students and the Rutgers community in accessing basic necessities.
