Birmingham Student Lived In Uni Library For Six Weeks To Earn £30,000



Towards the end of semester, we all feel as though we’re spending our lives in the library to get enough work and revision done.

But what if you were actually living in the library?

A failing student at the University of Birmingham did exactly this – living in the University library for six weeks with the promise of £30,000 as a reward.


The third year student, known as ‘UoB Library Hermit’, moved into the library at midnight on April 25th according to his Facebook page.

The challenge was set by his Lawyer brother, with the offer of £30,000 (enough to pay off his debts) if he achieves the average of 72% that he needs in his exams in order to pass.
