Basic Needs & Student Support


The Basic Needs & Student Support department is dedicated to the success of our most vulnerable students at CSUSB Palm Desert and San Bernardino Campuses. The department serves as a multidisciplinary space to house and support the campus' basic needs services and programs. Using a holistic approach to well-being that impacts student success, the department supports students through crisis by leveraging an ecosystem campus-wide approach that utilizes on and off-campus partnerships and provides direct support referrals based on each student’s circumstances.
