WASHINGTON (AP) - A student kicked out of his dorm at Howard University is receiving support and an offer of free housing.

WRC-TV in Washington is reporting (https://bit.ly/1ldOLCV ) that a Howard graduate agreed late Saturday to let 18-year-old Jawanza Ingram stay rent free at a home that was otherwise going to be rented out.

The alum stepped forward after Ingram’s predicament received an outpouring of support on social media. The sophomore marketing major was evicted from his dorm Tuesday after he let friends use an emergency entrance to celebrate a suitemate’s birthday late Monday.

Ingram admitted the infraction but said the punishment was too severe. The Miami native said the eviction left him with nowhere to go.

Howard officials said the punishment upheld a policy designed to keep dorms safe and secure.
