The Nova Nook provides supplemental personal necessities to students in need. Our goal is to create a safe space to distribute basic toiletries and food items to students in our community who may struggle to manage these costs on their own. The Nook is stocked with wide variety of items primarily through personal donations. 

Please visit the Nova Nook in the lower level of the Health Services Building, outside of the Office of Health Promotion. The Nook is open from 10am-4pm Monday through Friday. If you need access to the Nook outside of those hours, please email
