Aggressive Entrepreneurship: College Student in Boston is in Trouble After Trying to Airbnb His Dorm

A Boston-area college student has gotten into hot water with his school for trying to rent out his dorm room on the online home-sharing service Airbnb.

The student listed his dorm room at Emerson College in downtown Boston on the site last month, according to a petition on the website Change.Org titled "Free Jack Worth," which is asking the school to drop disciplinary proceedings against him.

"There is nothing criminal with providing cheap housing to travelers," said a supporter and fellow student, Ari Howorth, on the petition.

Worth had already faced $150 in fines and could be dismissed from the school as a result of pending misconduct charges.
