Student Care Supply Closets

Student Affairs and Campus Life currently has four Student Care Supply Closets across campus. We provide free toiletries and household items to students who are facing economic insecurity and/or an unexpected financial emergency. Student Care Supply Closets are stocked through donation drives, as well as the Student Care Emergency Response Fund.  

If you are a current student and need to access toiletries and/or household items, visit one of the Student Care Supply Closets locations listed below and a staff member will be able to assist you. Click here to access the Supply Closet Shopping Sheet. If you have questions about the program, please email Tassandra Rios-Scelso, Food Insecurity Coordinator/Campus Compact VISTA at triosscelso@umass.edu
