College dropout refuses to leave her NYC dorm room

Future demorat politician in the making.

From NY Post: She loves the college life — just not the classes. 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.

“As of today, June 7, 2016 you are still in occupancy of the aforementioned room,” Michell Quock, assistant director of residence life, wrote to Palmer two summers ago.

Last fall a Hunter attorney continued the battle to get rid of Palmer, sending her an eviction notice that said in bold-faced type: “THIRTY DAY NOTICE OF TERMINATION.”

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

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.

Though school officials say Palmer dropped out, she insists Hunter refused to let her register for fall 2016 classes after she disputed her housing and tuition bill.

“I felt that it was a miscommunication initially, but after I met with the dean I felt that they were starting to treat me unfairly. It was like, ‘Get out,’” she said.

Only full-time students who maintain a minimum grade point average and keep current on their room and board fees can stay in the dorms, the suit says.

Palmer, who first enrolled in Hunter in 2010 after a stint at St. John’s University in Queens, said dorm life is “really lonely” for someone in her 30s. “I feel very isolated,” she said, noting that Hunter moved her to a wing that’s only occupied by a middle-aged nurse, whom the college is also trying to evict.

The college wants to boot a total of nine nurses who were given rooms in various wings of the E. 25th Street building when it was owned by Bellevue Hospital. The resident nurses include 67-year-old Derek DeFreitas who kept a dormitory room “crash pad” at the address for decades.

  1. NYC housing too expensive that college dropouts feel the need to stay in the dorms….


  2. Hopefully, she ends up behind bars and pays what she owns. What on earth does she expect? Live there for ever, for free, while no longer in college? I would slap her with a $50k fine on top of what she owes, if I were the judge. These people’s sense of entitlement is killing this country.

  4. Why not just move her stuff out onto the lawn and change the locks? Or drag her out? Answer? She’s a black female. They’re afraid of the blow-back.

    It always amuses me when libs interview young kids about what they want to be when they grow up, and the answer is something like “a doctor, lawyer, nurse, astronaut…”– thinking you need only want it to achieve it.Then they get into a university and find out how damned hard it is, and the dedication to studying above all else if you want to succeed… and how many professors in the STEM areas aren’t going to always (if ever) just give you good grades because someone’s paying your tuition. And certainly not if nobody’s paying your bills… it STILL requires student effort, responsibility, and accountability.

    Just as with about every other real-world endeavor. The key is finding what you’re good at and applying yourself. And realizing when you’re NOT cut-out for something, and just learning to walk away and find something else.

    As for “…Derek DeFreitas who kept a dormitory room “crash pad” at the address for decades.” Considering the dorm’s prior tenant (Bellevue hospital), he was also likely a mental patient.

  7. No matter a dead beat is a dead beat even if she has a job bum is a bum and she is just a working bum. Server papers then 30 days have the Sheriff evict her to the street. Happens all the time its just that in today’s heated setting people think they can take advantage of the times so they try what they may. The fact still remains she is breaking the Law.

  8. Apparently, this dorm used to be part of the hospital and nurses were allowed to stay there or have a room there for free. They moved her there. There are others they are trying to evict.

    Why don’t they wait for them to go out, then lock them out of the building?

  9. She’s officially trespassing now if she has gotten eviction notices for 2 years. Time to call the police to arrest her for trespassing, throw her belongings on the curb, and change the locks. Even if she contests all that, no judge has the standing to ever give her back her room. She’s squatting there illegally. She’s getting away with it because nobody has the backbone to throw her out.

    As usual, the college is running scared. Are they scared of being charged with “racism.” Of course!

    What she is doing is waiting to file a law suit and then she will be set up for life. When will people learn the Dem’s program these people to test the water.

  11. She is now a full-time “dependent” of the college. Congratulations, here’s a cigar. She isn’t even a student any longer. 100 sq ft? Ought to hold about 30 “migrants”. Maybe they can help with that “loneliness” problem.

  16. If they throw her out with the nurses, it can’t be seen as discrimination unless the nurses are black too. Even if some are black, we know not all of them are. Assuming she has parents or a parent, they must be pieces of crap, raising a child who isn’t respectful of the law and isn’t responsible for her actions. Her parent(s) probably condone this twit’s actions. I blame Hunter College for not taking appropriate steps when the first deadline was exceeded.

  17. Shame of the college for letting this get out of hand. Have the sheriff remove her items while she is at work, lock her out and let her take it to court. She will lose. To be controlled by fear because of race is a cop out. I would also have her wages taken for back rent.

  20. No “boundaries” anymore for these people who feel perpetually “entitled,” most without valid reasoning to support their supposed “entitlement.” And now, this story tells me that there is NO SHAME or age limit to expectations similar to this 32-yr-old grifter.

  21. She’s like a tick that’s burrowed into a teat and won’t let go. That’s how this works. With each additional parasite the host grows weaker. Eventually the host dies and so do the parasites.

    Looks like the dorm needs worming.

  23. Can’t exactly say I’m surprised.

    What pisses me off is the confiscatory amount of money my brother is having to fork over to keep my nephew housed at NYU.

    • And I haven’t started on the hideous yearly tuition costs, which is more money than I ever made a year in my life – and I was in the top five percent.

  26. A 100 sq ft room has enough space for a mini kitchen & toilet?

    She has to go to the bathroom sometime, and she also has to do grocery shopping.

    Or does she order all of her groceries via a delivery service? The door’s gotta open sometime as well…

    • I thought the same thing. That’s 10 ft. X 10 ft. Prison cells are bigger. Somebody got that wrong. You could sit on the toilet and make dinner, if you rolled up the Murphy bed first.

  28. All this previous said here, …I’ve been wondering why the aging population hasn’t seized on this solution to their expensive housing in “assisted living?” “Assisted Living” in most instances is a code word for “communal living with a bunch of other people around who would call for help if you needed it.” Sign up for a course in “Women in the Modern Age and maybe 2-3 other basket-weaving courses…….apply for a dorm space…..MOVE IN….and live for free even when you never show up to your courses or even withdraw……Surely BEATS signing over all your earthly goods and bank accounts and wealth of any kind collected over a life time to an assisted living home (my mom is in one and they don’t even provide a PHONE in the room… I pay for a cell phone for her, but she can’t use it b/c of hearing aides…she can only talk on a “regular phone,” for which right now she has to travel by walker down an extensive hallway and stand in the open with everyone/everything going on around her, to have a “private” conversation with me.) I’ll be looking into this. 🙂
