I can’t live at home and I can’t live on-campus. What should I do?

The Covid-era grant is designed to provide students and their families with additional financial resources that can be used in many ways, including applying the grant to off-campus housing expenses.

Students who are experiencing significant hardship and believe that they absolutely can not live at home and cannot live on campus, can submit a form through SHARP so that student support professionals can better understand your situation. The SHARP team may consult with appropriate offices, including Student Financial Services, to make sure they are making the most informed decisions. The result of this process will determine if additional financial support beyond the Covid-era grant will be provided.
