A California College Offers Safe Overnight Parking For Students Living In Their Cars

A new Long Beach City College program will allow students who are living in their vehicles to park on campus overnight with a security guard present to ensure their safety. It will give students access to showers and lockers and will connect them with services like free food, access to mental health resources, free bus passes, and technology support. “We don’t look at this as a long-term solution. This is really a transitional solution. And so we kind of case-manage these students in as quickly as possible and transition them to more stable forms of housing,” said Michael Muñoz, the college’s interim superintendent-president.
