BOSTON — A student at Emerson College in Boston says he's facing disciplinary action after renting out his dorm room on Airbnb.

Jack Worth told The Boston Globe that he rented the room in early January to three guests on three separate nights.

The 19-year-old sophomore said the listing was online for two weeks before school officials asked him to remove it. Worth wouldn't say how much he charged for the room.

Worth said the school's punishment would mar his time at the liberal arts school.

Emerson officials wouldn't say whether Worth rented out his room on Airbnb, citing privacy concerns.

But school officials said an attempt to sublet a dorm room would violate the school's housing policies.

An Airbnb spokesman said all hosts are asked to follow local regulations when renting a room.
