Financial Crisis Resources

We've assembled a list of resources for our students who may be experiencing financial hardship during the pan​demic. 

EMERGENC​​​​Y RESOURCES AND SUPPORT

Hope for the Day allows you to search for free or reduced cost services like medical care, food, baby supplies, housing, and more. These resources and supports continue to be available when DePaul University is closed.

STUDENT EMERGE​​NCY ASSISTANCE FUND

DePaul University has set up the Student Emergency Assistance Fund. This fund is made up of generous donations and lets students know that DePaul is here to provide support. It offers timely financial help that can lead to peace of mind and academic success. Providing funds for travel expenses, meals, technology needs and other necessities will help students who are facing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are or know of a DePaul student experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19, please send an email to deanofstudents@depaul.edu.
