We are all feeling the effects of COVID-19 in our communities. UBC students are doing their part to flatten the curve, and this has meant quickly adapting to new learning realities and financial circumstances, and the impact has been significant and immediate.
Many students are now facing financial difficulties that they could never have anticipated. Students, like many others, are looking at situations such as loss of part-time jobs, adjusting home resources to accommodate online learning, and unplanned trips home.
As UBC works to assist as many students as possible, we ask you to consider making a gift to help us respond to the increased demand. Your support will provide immediate assistance to UBC students in these challenging times, providing access to funds for various expenses, such as housing, food and travel needs.
