Basic Needs and Resources

To focus time and energy on learning, it’s important for every student to have their basic needs met.  Click a category below to find a variety of NDSU and community resources.  If you can’t find what you need, please call the Dean of Students Office at (701)231-7701.

First Link

First Link (211) provides free and confidential health and human services information. They are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to connect you with the resources and information you need. If you’re looking for information about services available in your community for you or a loved one, they can help.

Text your zip code to 898-211(TXT211) or call 211 to speak with one of their highly trained information and referral specialists. Your call is completely confidential, and they have call menus in English, Spanish, and Hmong. Interpreters are also available for any language.

Visit the website  to explore resources and support that may be available.

NDSU does not maintain a full list of resources under these basic needs.  It is recommended that 211 also be considered when trying to find resources.
