Student resources and support
There's more to university than attending classes and submitting assignments. Sometimes life gets tricky. Simon Fraser University offers you a range of student resources and support when experiencing hardship during your studies.

Quest Food Exchange through the SFPIRG
The Simon Fraser Public Interest Group (SFPIRG) has partnered with Quest in order to help support people facing financial hardship to access affordable, healthy food. If you are struggling to afford groceries, drop by SFPIRG and talk to a staff member about referring you.
