Assessing basic needs of students at colleges and universities is gaining traction across the United States. Our research examined the prevalence of food and housing insecurity at a land-grant institution and its implications on student success. Food insecure students have poorer health status, difficulty concentrating on their studies, lower GPAs, and suspended their studies more often. This study provides institutions with data on food insecurity among students and recommendations to promote student success.
