  • At Kennesaw State, we understand the challenges of food insecurity during your time here. That's why we've established our campus pantry, dedicated to providing essential food supplies to any KSU student experiencing this hardship. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we maintain a stocked pantry to ensure you have access to nutritious meals, helping you focus on their studies.

    As long as donations continue to come in, our pantry will remain a reliable resource, offering ongoing support to students in need.

  • With generous grants from the Beacon Foundation and the American Opportunity Foundation, CARE Services now offers temporary on-campus housing to KSU students in need. These apartments serve as emergency accommodations for up to 14 days while students collaborate with CARE to find a more permanent housing solution. In instances where all units are occupied, our CARE case management team will explore alternative shelter options or, depending on available funding, assess the feasibility of securing temporary hotel accommodations for students.

    It's worth noting that CARE's services rely heavily on donations for funding, which determines the extent of our support.
