Hunter College drop-out refuses to leave her dorm room

Although she's "attended" the college for 8 years (with a stint at another college before that), and hasn't attended any classes at all since 2016, this 32-year-old lady is still fighting her eviction and so far, is winning.

It's a NYC story, but Connecticut's own landlord/tenant laws are similarly protective of tenants who don't pay rent.

Hunter College is waging a court battle to evict a stubborn student who refuses to leave her dorm room some two years after dropping out.
Delaware native Lisa S. Palmer — who has not paid rent since 2016 — refuses to leave Room E579 at the school’s 425 E. 25th St. co-ed dormitory, according to an eviction lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
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.
But the former geography major, who now works for an architecture firm, refused to budge.
“I plan on fighting the lawsuit and while I fight it, I’m going to stay,” Palmer told The Post from outside her messy, 100-square-foot single, which is adorned with a lava lamp, a dream catcher and piles of dirty dishes
