In an effort to continue growing the resources provided to students by the Homelessness and Food Insecurity Taskforce [HFI] this November, Emergency Housing and Shower Services have become official resources RU students can take advantage of.

Emergency Housing Services

Who benefits:

This resource is for any enrolled Roosevelt University student who is experiencing a crisis and needs a temporary place to stay overnight.
