The HSRC is primarily student-fee funded

Most programs at the HSRC are funded by student fees paid by Corvallis campus students. This funding structure limits how much support we can offer students at the Cascades campus or those who are taking classes online through Ecampus. However, we know that students everywhere (at most colleges and universities, actually) could be impacted by basic needs insecurity. This page outlines what programs students can access if they are not Corvallis-campus student-fee paying. 

Students able to get to the Corvallis campus:
  • Anyone who meets income qualifications is eligible to receive services from the HSRC Food Pantry
  • Any students who are able to visit the HSRC in person can participate in the Textbook Lending Program. Textbooks must be returned to the HSRC - this can be a physical drop off, or students can return textbooks via the US mail system (HSRC cannot cover any shipping costs). 
  • Local students can also come to the HSRC and receive support applying for SNAP benefits
  • Any member of the OSU community who is local might find the @eatfreeOSU program helpful. 
Students unable to get to the Corvallis Campus:
  • Oregon residents can use the 211 website to find resources in their local community. 
  • Students outside of Oregon can visit the USDA's webpage to find resources to sign up for SNAP in their community and this database of emergency food pantries to find a local food pantry. 
  • Local libraries can sometimes be a resource for finding textbooks and course materials, often through the Interlibrary loan program. Ask a librarian for help. The Oregon State Valley Library is also available to Ecampus students though textbook availability is limited.
