Basic Needs

Sun Devils take care of ourselves, each other and our community.

We understand that sometimes students may face challenges that impact fulfilling their basic needs.  We have support services and resources that will assist students with meeting these needs and help students thrive in their coursework and reach their educational goals.

We at ASU recognize that there is no one answer for facing challenges and meeting basic needs within our campus community. However, through a combination of resources, programs and one-on-one support, together we explore the most optimal options for each student’s unique situation.

At ASU we are committed to your success and here to support you. Below you will find University and community resources to help support your basic needs. Should you not know where to start, the Dean of Students office at each location is always available as a place to begin getting the support you need.
