Student Basic Needs Resources

Student Basic Needs Resources

Anoka-Ramsey Community College is committed to providing excellent educational opportunities to the communities it serves. We recognize basic needs — including things like food, housing and transportation — can have a direct impact on the well-being and success of our students. To assist our community in meeting these needs, we’ve compiled the resources below. The information will be revised when appropriate and evolve as necessary.

You don't need to navigate this alone. Anoka-Ramsey Community College Counselors are available to meet with students who need assistance with mental health or basic needs issues.
