Homelessness / housing insecurity

Students who are experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity should contact Karima Legette, director of the Educational Opportunity Program and Binghamton's Homeless Liaison, at She is the designated point of contact for students experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness — defined by SUNY as lack of a "fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence” — and can help students meet their academic, financial and wraparound support needs.

Housing insecurity or homelessness could apply to students who have a challenge finding or maintaining reliable, consistent and safe housing. It could present as students couch surfing, living in a motel or hotel, staying overnight in private or public spaces that do not typically offer residence, or sleeping in personal or public vehicles or transportation hubs.
