Aggie Compass is open!

The Aggie Compass is a comfortable space for students to build community, get connected to housing programs, receive CalFresh enrollment assistance, and get support navigating basic needs resources and services.

Our Mission is to ensure that every student has safe, secure housing, access to healthy food, and financial stability, that will help them succeed at UC Davis and in life.

If you are a UC Davis student facing these types of challenges, here is a list of our resources. You can submit a Basic Needs Assistance Request, stop in, or email us for help building a resource plan.
