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.

BUt hey it gets worse...from the same college
Nurse kept crash pad in college dorm for decades: suit
A 67-year-old man has been crashing in a Hunter College dorm room — among comely coeds — for nearly four decades, according to a new lawsuit by the university.

Derek DeFreitas has a permanent residence in Orange County. Yet he’s “maintained a dormitory room ‘crash pad’ at the Brookdale Residence Hall on East 25th Street and First Avenue” since 1980, a lawyer for Hunter says in the suit for his ouster.
The 14-story brick building was once a part of the Bellevue School of Nursing, but Hunter — which is associated with The City University of New York — now controls the property.

“DeFreitas refuses to leave his dormitory originally provided to him and other under a long-discontinued program dating to the 1960s that reserved a certain number of rooms for active Bellevue nurses,” the suit says.

DeFreitas has called Room 6104 a second home since he started working at Bellevue. He paid just $50 a month when he first moved in to the 100-square- foot space. Now his rent is $694.

When Hunter sent DeFreitas, who is also an attorney, an eviction notice in August he claimed to have a “contractual right to stay in his dorm room indefinitely.”

He refused “to make way for students enrolled at Hunter College who are awaiting housing, thus depriving them of much-needed space,” the suit says.




Meanwhile, male and female undergraduates “are forced to share common areas and bathroom facilities with DeFreitas,” the suit says.

And he’s also encouraged other nurses to stay put.

But one of his colleagues, 61-year-old Clayton Barone, says dorm life is lonely for a sexagenarian.

“One nurse had to leave and move to the Bronx. She was my best friend, I was really sad,” Barone said, adding that he says hello to the students but they mostly keep to themselves.

Hunter, which claims the right to terminate DeFreitas’ month-to-month occupancy agreement with just 30 days notice, has been able to clear 21 of 30 nurses from the rooms.

College officials are asking a judge to issue an order directing a city sheriff to “eject DeFreitas from the dorm room.”

But DeFreitas claims he moved out within the last few weeks and retired from his job.

“Hunter made me feel terrible when I had to leave. I wouldn’t have retired if I could have stayed,” DeFreitas said.

He said he kept the dorm room as a pied-a-terre because his commute home to upstate New York could take up to three hours.

“I looked into what it would cost to rent an apartment and it would cost me $3,500 when I only paid a few hundred,” he explained.

Hunter’s attorney, Eric D. Sherman, declined to comment.

So sweet to see these indoctrination experts reap what they have so vigorously sown.
