We serve all URI students who are food and/or housing insecure, and struggle to make ends meet. All you need is your student ID card. We are committed to protecting your privacy if you visit us or contact us for resources.


The Students First Fund

The Students First Fund has been established to provide additional emergency support to URI students with demonstrated financial need. Eligible applicants must: 1) be in good academic standing (2.0 cumulative GPA), 2) have applied for financial aid, 3) have exhausted all financial aid options (e.g. subsidized and unsubsidized loans) and 4) have sought employment.

If you do not meet these requirements but believe that your special circumstances justify your need, please describe your situation in a word document and upload it in the “Supporting Documentation” section of the application.
