​Resources for Students

The University of Findlay’s offerings to help students with their basic needs continues to evolve. As students' needs are met, they can better focus on their education in a healthy, holistic way. We realize that there are situations in life that are difficult to endure, and we want to resource our students to help them focus on their academic careers and not on pressing emergency needs.

The University has many resources in place to help students succeed.  To access and navigate those resources, please request your application by sending an email to the Oiler Success Center at [email protected] or use the link below to schedule your appointment with the Student Persistence Coordinator.  ​

The University has implemented numerous programs to help students in need

Resource Navigation

Many of us are facing complex and confusing situations that have placed us in a situation of need.  If you are struggling with how to access resources, understand those resources, or simply would like to talk to someone about your situation, we are here to help.​

Swipe Out Hunger

Swipe Out Hunger is a joint initiative between Sodexo and Findlay that works to end food insecurity among college students. Unfortunately, one in three college students faces food insecurity at some point in their college career. The goal of Swipe Out Hunger is to help combat that need.

Each student who applies and is approved will receive six meal swipes from our Meal Swipe Bank. A student who already has a meal plan will not be eligible for the meal swipe program, but they are welcome to contact a Findlay staff member to provide resource referrals for other needs they may have.

Laptop Loaner Program

Due to the graciousness of the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund for Mental Health, Findlay has acquired 10 new laptops to serve as short-term loaners for students who need access to a working computer.

Calculator Loaner Program

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the AmerCorps Vista program, the University of Findlay now has 10 of the TI30 and TI84 calculators available to serve as short-term loaners for students who are unable to supply their own. 

University of Findlay Pantry

The University of Fi​ndlay has opened a campus pantry in partnership with Student Government Association, Student Affairs, Buford Center for Diversity and Service, Sodexo, Physical Plant, and Chopin Hall. The pantry has some shelf-stable groceries, toiletries, small appliances and kitchenware, and other essential items for personal success.
