BOSTON (AP) - A student at Emerson College in Boston came up with a creative way to offset the astronomical cost of an education - he listed his dorm room on Airbnb.

But Emerson administrators are none too happy with 19-year-old sophomore Jack Worth and are considering disciplinary action against him for violating school policies.

Worth tells Boston.com (https://bit.ly/1PS9ZEh ) he posted his room in mid-January and hosted three guests before the school told him to remove his posting Friday. He was fined $150 by Airbnb.

He said he posted the room because he wanted to make a little money and because of Emerson’s convenient location.

Emerson said in an email that any attempt to sublet or rent a dorm room violates school policies.

Worth said he had not read anything along those lines.
