This site provides listings for campus and community resources that help support basic needs.
Northland is committed to providing excellent educational opportunities to the communities it serves. We recognize basic needs — including things like food, housing and transportation — can have a direct impact on the well-being and success of our students. To assist our community in meeting these needs, we’ve compiled the resources below. This page is meant to help connect students and their families to basic needs information and resources, and it will be revised when appropriate and evolve as necessary.
Food insecurity, child care, health and wellness, mental health, and others are examples of resources you'll find in the directory.
If you are in need of Basic Need's support services please contact us.
