BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Buffalo State students were forced to live inside The Loft apartments off campus, because there wasn't enough room for them on campus at the beginning of the year.
Sophomore Racheal Johnson says she's been stressed out. She's had less than two weeks to pack up her things inside her downtown apartment and be out by Friday, because a room is ready for her at a residence hall on Buffalo State's campus.
"They didn't have to do it while we're preparing for midterms," said Johnson.
The school has around 70 students inside The Lofts and provided shuttle service to class because they didn't have enough rooms on campus until now.
"I am going on my fourth day of trying to get my stuff over to Stacks and because I have so much homework and so much stuff that I need to do on top of that, it's not going very well," said Johnson.
Some students who opted to break their contracts with the school and stay at The Lofts are angry about getting relocated mid-semester.
"This is my home; it's rude for them to come and rip us out of here," said sophomore Rachel Harrison. "Honestly, I don't know if I will come back next semester."
Vice President of Student Affairs Hal Payne says for the most part, there's a big misunderstanding. Students could wait to move until spring break. Those who didn't want to move on campus could break their contracts to stay at The Lofts, and shuttle service will still be offered through the end of the semester.
"We would hate to say to them at the beginning of the year because we cannot house you on campus the first day of class that experience will be lost to you for the remainder of the academic year," said Payne.
