Columbia Basic Needs Columbia Basic Needs

The Columbia College Basic Needs program aims to assist students with navigating on-campus and community resources as related to basic needs such as housing, food, medical care, transportation, and more. We know that fulfilling basic needs is a key component in achieving educational success. 

This Basic Needs web page includes a resource guide for students to check out what college and community programs may be available to assist them. Specific details about each resource may change, so checking in with each program to get up to date information is encouraged. 

Make an appointment with the Basic Needs Coordinator.
