Basic Needs Security Among Students Attending Georgia Colleges and Universities

In fall 2017, researchers from the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice conducted a large-scale survey to better understand food and housing insecurity among college students at both community and 4-year colleges and universities. The effort built on a similar survey of 70 community colleges during the 2016–2017 academic year. In total, 33 community colleges and 36 colleges and universities, from twenty states and the District of Columbia participated in the 2017 survey.

To better understand the challenges faced by college students in particular, this report presents a profile of survey participants in Georgia. In addition, the report compares district-level results with aggregated results from the national survey sample. National sample results are similar to those found in the associated survey report Still Hungry and Homeless in College.
