About the Basic Needs Center
Experiencing basic needs insecurity can feel overwhelming and isolating. Let the student know you’re here to support them and there are resources available for them at CU Boulder. If the student needs support beyond basic needs, we can connect them to SSCM for long-term support.
Supporting the center
We provide a variety of volunteer opportunities for students, staff, faculty and community members, including one-day events and long-term volunteer opportunities. Visit our volunteer page to learn more and sign-up.
In addition to volunteering, there are many other ways to support the center, such as giving financially, donating items via our Buff Pantry Amazon wish list and emergency housing Amazon wish list, or participating in programs like Swipe It Forward.
