Due to recent COVID-19 developments, please refer to this page for frequent updates regarding our hours of operation, services, and procedures for Student Basic Needs business operations including the Trojan Food Pantry. Please also be mindful that there is an increased need for our resources, and due to COVID-19 policies on campus and statewide, we have strict food procurement opportunities which limit the resources we have. Thank you for understanding that our resources may be limited at this time. As always, we wish everyone health, happiness, and peace!

Give today to help USC students who are impacted by COVID-19
Today, students need immediate help with unexpected expenses related to COVID-19. Many are having difficulty paying their rent or buying food and other necessities, as off-campus part-time jobs and internships throughout the business community disappear. Others face the cost of returning to their hometowns throughout the world or of obtaining stronger internet connections as they shift to online learning. You can help.
The USC Student Basic Needs Fund supports the students in our Trojan Family who are experiencing financial difficulties at this time of unprecedented uncertainty. The fund assists with:
- Housing expenses
- Food insecurity
- Emergency travel
- Income loss related to closed workplaces
- Other unforeseen needs stemming from the current crisis
Your support not only provides financial help, but also the resources and sense of hope our students need to be able to finish their semester strong.
