  • Osprey Community

    During this time of transition, in order to make sure all of our Ospreys are safe, UNF has taken precautionary measures in preventing the spread of COVID-19. The Osprey community has come together to make this time as easy as possible for you. A lot of resources you would get in person are still available, they are just modified to keep everyone as safe as possible while still having access to the resources you would receive on campus. We are all doing our best to make sure our Ospreys are well taken care of while temporarily being away from the nest.

    This is a time for all of us to band together, exercise patience and understanding. We are all adjusting to remote instruction or work of some kind. We are doing our best to respond to each person in accommodating needs as best we can as follows with university guidelines. We care about you and your families. We are all in this together!

    Through this time, our Instagram stories will contain helpful campus resource information, our Facebook will provide you with Housing updates and we are doing our best to respond to any questions you may have there (however, make sure you are monitoring your UNF email account, your UNF email is the main source of how we will be communicating important updates to you) and our Twitter account is another resource for helpful information.

    We have loved seeing our Ospreys banding together to combat the Coronavirus in practicing social distancing and helping each other in the ways that we can!

    We are proud of you! 

  • Lend-A-Wing
    Lend-A-Wing Pantry is designed to combat food insecurity, and they’re here to help students who may be struggling during this challenging time. Lend-A-Wing recently set up a "grab bag" pick-up where a LAW employee will bring a bag out to students (in support of social distancing). Overall, Lend-A-Wing strives to create a safe and comfortable environment where students can request food anonymously. Your support could be crucial for a student in need.
  • Emergency relief for UNF students

    Emergency Relief for Students

    We are all feeling the effects of the COVID-19 situation and its impact on our daily lives. In these unique times, it's vitally important that we take care of ourselves and one another.

    UNF has taken proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, including transitioning to remote instruction for students through the Spring semester and temporarily transitioning to remote work for employees. Many of our students have returned home to finish the semester safely with their families. However, the COVID-19 situation may have additional effects, as some of our students are now facing unexpected financial hardship and other unfortunate circumstances related to food, employment, housing and concern for their personal and emotional well-being. We are working hard to bring together resources for those students in greatest need.

    This is your chance to help.

    By giving to any of the funds below, you can directly support critical areas of need for UNF students. Your gift will make an immediate impact on those hit hardest by COVID-19.

    Thank you from the entire UNF family.
