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:
