Throughout its history, the Aurora University community has come together to help one another. We understand that life can be challenging and, at times, you may need additional support. AU is dedicated to helping connect you with the resources you need to succeed as a student. From navigating academic resources and services to finding housing, food, and clothing, you can find support through the following programs.
