College students struggle to find housing as the coronavirus pushes them off campus

John Rovin thought he’d be studying abroad in Brazil from February until December. But on March 13, a month after the college junior arrived in São João del-Rei, the University of Texas at Austin canceled its study-abroad programs. The World Health Organization had declared coronavirus a pandemic, and less than a week later, Rovin returned to Texas. Back in Austin, he no longer had stable housing or income.
