Homeless Student Lived In Library For 7 Months

Ananova: Homeless student lived in library for seven months

A homeless New York student says he slept for seven months in a university library without being caught.

Steve Stanzak, 20, says he set up home in New York University's main library because he couldn't afford housing costs on top of his tuition.

He was finally discovered by shocked administrators last week, reports the New York Post.

They found his website,, in which he chronicled his undercover life in the Bobst Library on New York's Washington Square.

NYU spokesman John Beckman said Stanzac had now been provided with free housing for the rest of the semester. "The library is open 24 hours for a reason; there's a demand for students to study around the clock," he said. "And it's not unusual to see someone who's fallen asleep."
