To date, The New York Times reports that at least a 178,000 coronavirus cases have been linked to institutions of higher education. Reopened campuses present obvious dangers, but shuttered dorms and dining halls create a more acute crisis for a smaller number of students, depriving them of stable housing, regular meals, and the broadband they need to attend virtual classes.
