The HEHROS program is focused on supporting Radford University students who have food insecurities, are homeless, at risk for becoming homeless or in transition while on campus. Radford University’s HEHROS aims to mitigate the challenges our students face, enhance quality of life by connecting them with available resources and empowering them to succeed. We recognize the importance of addressing the needs of all students on campus and seek to support every member of the Highlander family.  A food pantry is located in Heth 243. Any Highlander is eligible to get food.  Bring your University One Card to the Office of the Dean of Students in Heth 274, Monday - Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to receive food.

Homeless Students are those who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.

This includes students who:

  • Share housing due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or similar reason;
  • Live in motels, hotels, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations;
  • Live in emergency or transitional shelters;
  • Have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation;
  • Live in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings or substandard housing.

(Subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, reauthorized under Title X, Part C of NCLB)

If you are homeless, at risk of being homeless or know a student who is, please, see our resources and contact the Office of the Dean of Students for assistance. All correspondence with HEHROS is confidential.
