SOU understands that basic needs have a direct impact on the wellbeing and success of students. Basic needs are conditions and resources you need to survive and thrive and can include food, housing, transportation, finances, and more. This page is meant to help connect students and their families to basic needs information and resources.
SOU recently joined CONNECT OREGON, a coordinated care network of health and social service providers. We encourage our students to make a free account to gain access to resources and assistance available throughout the state of Oregon and beyond.
If you would prefer to speak to someone regarding your basic needs, please complete an SOU Cares Note and a Care Coordinator will be in touch with you to schedule an appointment to discuss ways to support you.
The content within these pages has been collected by the Office of the Deans of Students (DOS) through a collaboration between the Equity Coordinator for Sustainability and Basic Needs Resourcing and the Care Coordinators. Visit their respective pages for more information or to make a personal connection with these DOS team members.
