Hunger on Campus: The Challenge of Food Insecurity for College Students Oct. 2016
In this new report, the authoring groups go a step further, utilizing their
presence on campuses to further develop the knowledge base in this nascent
field. Drawing on a survey of almost 3,800 students at 34 community and
4-year colleges across 12 states – the broadest sample to date – the authors
find that 22 percent of respondents have the very lowest levels of food
insecurity, and 13 percent of students at community colleges are homeless.

Hungry and Homeless in College March 2017
This report presents findings from the largest survey ever conducted of basic needs insecurity among college students. In 2015, the Wisconsin HOPE Lab published the research report Hungry to Learn, a study based on a survey of approximately 4,000 students at ten community colleges in seven states. This study includes more than 33,000 students at 70 community colleges in 24 states. While this is not a nationally representative sample of students or colleges, it is far greater in size and diversity than prior samples, and provides information to shed new light on critical issues warranting further research.
