About

We all face unanticipated challenges during our lives. Sometimes these challenges for students include fundamental issues of food insecurity, housing and other financial concerns. UNH has multiple resources that can help. Your support to any of the funds below makes a significant difference for current students and allows them to focus on their education instead of their basic needs. 

Student Emergency Assistance Fund: Provides short-term financial assistance to UNH undergraduate and graduate students unable to meet essential expenses due to temporary or unexpected hardships.  

Swipe it Forward: Offers meal swipes in the dining halls or as a Meal to Go to undergraduate and graduate students who are challenged by food insecurity.  

Cats’ Cupboard: Helps alleviate food insecurity for UNH community members in need by providing supplemental, direct access to free, nourishing food. Current undergraduate or graduate students and employees at the University of New Hampshire can take advantage of this critical resource.  

The Inn Between Housing Fund: Provides emergency support for undergraduate and graduate students experiencing housing loss.    

The Loaner Laptop program: Assists undergraduate and graduate students who do not have the financial means to access or replace the technical resources required to learn and study.
