Hunter College Evicts 32-Year-Old Dropout Who Won't Leave Dorm Room”

A 32-year-old college dropout refuses to leave her dorm room nearly two years after she stopped taking classes. An official met with the woman and indicated she could stay in the room ahead of the 2016-2017 academic year if she paid off her balance and re-enrolled in classes. Throughout the summer, she received notices letting her know of her owed balance, the lawsuit alleges.

The 32-year-old "racked up a staggering $94,000 in unpaid residence hall charges on account of her continued occupancy, all the while ignoring Hunter College's service of additional vacate notices", said the suit.

Lisa Palmer dropped out of Hunter College almost 18 months ago.

Lisa Palmer hasn't been enrolled in classes at Hunter College in Manhattan since 2016, but she refuses to leave the dorm, according to CBS New York.

The school's website states that single rooms in the Brookdale Residence Hall cost $6,000 per school year.

Palmer says she plans to stay put and hopes to eventually finish her degree at Hunter College.

While school officials claim that Palmer dropped out of college, the DE native says she was barred from registering for classes after disputing her housing and tuition bill.

The suit says only full-time students who maintain minimum grade point averages and keep current on room and board fees can stay in the dorms. So the school began to issue vacate notices in July 2016. "It was like, 'get out",' she said.

Palmer agreed, the school said, and her application for student housing was approved with the expectation that she'd uphold her end of the bargain.

"You are required to vacate and surrender the premises on or before October 31, 2017 at 12:00 p.m.", the attorney wrote.

Palmer remains defiant in defending her place in the dorms.

Though she refused to leave, Palmer said life in her 100-square-foot dorm crammed with a lava lamp, a dream catcher, and piles of dirty dishes was "really lonely" in her 30s, and she felt "isolated".
