San Jose State University students protest homeless crisis on campus

SAN JOSE (KRON) - Students at San Jose State University are frustrated with the growing homeless student problem on campus, saying nothing is being done to help them. 

The 13th annual Poverty Under The Stars event was held overnight on campus. 

The goal is to raise awareness for the housing crisis students are facing. 

About 13 percent of students are homeless and are sleeping in the library, student union, and their cars. 

They are calling on the university's president to accommodate the homeless students with reserved parking spots, beds, and spaces in dorms. 

"We should not be focusing on you know where are we going to spend the night, where are we going to sleep, I'm hungry... for me it's just unbelievable. A lot of students there are homeless and are wearing SJSU gear and are facing those problems today."
