Eligibility & FAQs

A 2015 study found that at least 80 students had experienced homelessness while enrolled at UW. Of students in relationships, 25.5% of men and 26.9% of women had a partner who tried to control who they saw, what they did, or who they talked to. 13.3% of men and 16.5% of women had a partner who publicly insulted, shamed, or swore at them. And 7.3% of men and 11.2% of women had a partner who got physically aggressive with them.

If you have experienced any of these or are aware of any students in need of emergency living assistance, please utilize the Husky Pride Fund as a resource. The Husky Pride Fund will provide emergency relocation assistance to students who experience a sudden loss of stable housing to due to financial hardship, domestic violence, or other circumstances which would result in loss of stable housing. The Husky Pride Fund is a scholarship fund run by students, for students.

Through the Husky Pride Fund, emergency and temporary housing will be available for students who become displaced from their home, along with appropriate transitional funds for emergency living situations.
