about

The current state of our island has caused our community to think differently, to tap into a spirit of resiliency, and to come together in solidarity to overcome COVID-19 and its direct effect on Guam and her people. UOG Cares is part of the University of Guam's response to the needs of our students and reaffirms commitment to help our students reach their academic goals. UOG Cares provides students with support and solutions in the areas of finances, academics, and health & wellness.
