The following is a discussion paper based on the basic findings of a simple survey study undertaken between 2017-18 at Red Deer College. The study was done to get a preliminary idea of what post-secondary student homelessness looks like, and as such the findings presented here are suggestive, not conclusive. Currently, the study is being undertaken at three other sites and the methodology and findings are being refined. However, some very compelling basic observations and analysis are offered herein. It is our hope that we can engage other researchers and institutions, and governments, in a more in-depth and comprehensive study with the goal of literally ending student homelessness.
