We are here to help!

The Basic Needs Center is intended to be a one-stop, single location for students to access basic needs services and resources linking students to on- and off-campus housing, food, mental health, and other basic needs.

Students will be required to sign in each time they visit the Basic Needs Center.

Students are allowed 1 snack & drink per day.

Bag of food:  You can receive a bag of food from the pantry two weeks.  

Note on Housing:  At this time Merced College Basic Needs does not provide financial assistance for housing.  Please see the housing tab for off campus resources.
