Campus Resources To Help You Save Money Including Free Food

Last updated January 6, 2020

For many students, attending college will include being separated from their primary support systems at home for the first time. Responsibilities like managing a budget, maintaining proper wellness, time management, and navigating life’s unexpected hurdles come into play; on top of trying to be a successful student. It can get overwhelming at times on your own. The good thing is, you don’t have to panic. There are actually several support services available on campus, either free or at a discounted rate, designed to help students navigate through any obstacles they may face while working toward academic success.

At CSUDH, you can always access the following resources anytime you’re in need: 

FREE Food on the ToroLink

You can find free food on campus by logging on to the ToroLink and clicking the ToroLink Events tab. Use the Perks Filter and click on ‘FREE FOOD’.
