Basic Needs

Back to Students

Welcome to the University of Michigan Basic Needs Portal. This document is a first step in accessing support for students at U-M experiencing food, housing, or financial insecurity. It lists resources, contact information, and how to access the resource for those who could use assistance in these or other areas.

This information is currently housed in a Google spreadsheet, but it will be migrating over to a standalone website in the next few months.

This information was collected by Poverty Solutions Research Assistants Brook Sinclair, Payton Watt, and Marissa Natzke. The project was overseen by Trevor Bechtel at Poverty Solutions,
building on work begun by the Food Insecurity Working Group that includes Alex Bryan, of U-M Sustainable Food Program, and Sarah Daniels, associate dean of students.
