Homelessness and life as a college student
Did you know that affordable student housing is a big deal? Yes, it’s true. College students around the country deal with high costs associated with housing. You may think it’s a strange problem, but it makes sense on closer inspection. After all, housing prices continue to rise and even financial aid may not cover all the expenses associated with living far from home and family. Students attending community colleges especially struggle. That’s because community colleges simply don’t have the resources available that a four-year university would. Some schools are now ensuring that students can sleep in their cars in a safe parking area near the college!1 This doesn’t solve the housing issue, but does help to give homeless students a safe place to stay. As you can see, housing is truly an important concern for young adults (and even students with families) seeking higher education.
