Basic Needs Center Assistance Form
This form is a centralized entry point for all UC Berkeley students facing challenges with access to adequate food, stable housing, financial resources, or other areas of basic needs. Response times will differ depending on the urgency of your need. This form is checked daily, and you can expect a response within 5 business days.

Emergency housing cases will be prioritized and our team will contact you as soon as we can.

While you await a response from our team, please consider the following resources:

For HOUSING SEARCH SUPPORT for temporary, short-term and/or long term housing,  please review the Basic Needs Center Housing Search Resources:

For EMERGENCY FINANCIAL SUPPORT, consider a short-term emergency loan through the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office (no-interest) 

All enrolled students are eligible for support, including grad, undergrad, international, and undocumented students. Unfortunately staff, faculty, and visiting scholars are ineligible to receive emergency housing or financial support, but can access our Food Pantry and CalFresh resources.
