COVID-19 Mutual Aid for UCSD


Mutual Aid UCSD is organizing to support students, staff, and contingent faculty members in need of emergency food, finances, delivery of groceries and supplies, and/or academic and social support.

This pandemic has greatly exacerbated the structural vulnerabilities that many face due to lack of adequate compensation and financial aid, rising tuition and fees, unaffordable and substandard living conditions, and punitive actions against grad student organizing. We encourage those with access to resources and stability - especially full-time faculty and administrators in our community - to share resources in solidarity with those who have been made vulnerable to this crisis.

If you would like to request aid or want to volunteer, please fill out this form:

Where will the money go?

100% of donations will be disbursed to those in our community most impacted by COVID-19 through direct funds, groceries, pre-made meals, and supplies, as requested. We are prioritizing folks who are Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color, immunocompromised, disabled, quarantined without pay, elderly, undocumented, queer, and/or trans.

We are not an official UCSD organization but an autonomous collective of UCSD students (16 organizers and counting) who have come together to build networks of solidarity and mutual aid on our campus that can last beyond this crisis moment. We invite you to join us.
