When Worlds Collide: Seattle Colleges Host Homeless Camps

Homeless people and college students become neighbors in an initiative to build awareness about Seattle's homelessness problem. 

And that's why the Tent City Collective has been moving tent camps to universities in the Seattle area. 

The camps by the Tent City Collective are temporary. The latest — on University of Washington's campus — will only stay for 90 days. As many as 99 people can stay there. 

But while the tents are on campus, they give students a chance to interact with a community they normally might not. 

Seattle has a growing homeless population. At the beginning of 2016, the number of homeless people there had grown 19 percent from the prior year.
