Housing Insecurity Resources
How We Can Help
The purpose of the Housing Insecurity Resources webpage is to provide the most up-to-date county and community housing resources available to assist Foothill College students who are facing homelessness or who are housing insecure.
Please Note: Foothill does not provide student housing nor do we act as a liaison to local apartment housing.

Self-Refer with Our Partners
We encourage you to connect with these established partners.
The Bill Wilson Center
The Bill Wilson Center will assist students who are homeless or at risk of being homeless with immediate rental support.
Local & Private Rental Opportunities
All private rental opportunities are solicited by current Foothill or local students and property owners who live in the surrounding area who have notified Foothill College of available rooms or house sharing opportunities.
International Student Resources
Like most community colleges, Foothill does not have housing on campus; however, the International Programs Office offers resources and assistance to help our international students find comfortable housing options.

Housing Insecurity and Homelessness Defined
Are you a Foothill student who is housing insecure or homeless?
Housing Insecure and Homelessness Defined
Housing insecure means you are experiencing a set of broad housing issues and risk factors, including frequent moves, crowded living space, poor housing quality, or the inability to afford rent or bills.
Homelessness means you are absent of a place to live, which includes if you are living in a shelter, vehicle or abandoned structure.
If any of the above describes your housing situation, our Homeless Student Support Resources may be helpful to you.
