Single Point of Contact 

For unaccompanied homeless college students. 

What is a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for college students?
SPOCs are safe and supportive college administrators committed to helping unaccompanied homeless youth (UHY) navigate the college process. They connect students with campus departments, services, and provide ongoing support.

Connecticut’s SPOC System
SPOC networks are located throughout the country. In December of 2017, Connecticut took the first steps in establishing this network in our state. A partnership began with Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) and Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH) to address the significant barrier housing insecurity presents to student success. Several institutions have joined our work in exploring how to get more accurate data concerning homelessness and housing insecurity and how to implement a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) system to provide a more comprehensive, consistent and trackable response to homeless students.

If you are a student experiencing severe housing instability or homelessness, please contact the SPOC at your college or university for support.
