Moore Hall at Buffalo State College has had a mouse problem. Tiffany, a resident of the dormitory building, has been dealing with them since August of 2016. 

Just a few weeks ago, school officials began to check the apartments and attempt to close the areas where mice were entering and exiting the facility. 

"Earlier this month it was brought to our attention that we had some sort of a mice infestation which is relatively common" Terry Harding, Director of campus services said. 

Tiffany, who is a student at Buffalo State College, was woken up one night after hearing the mice in her walls. All of this adds more pressure to the single mom. 

"I don't feel comfortable living here," Tiffany said, "it's like I have to deal with this as well as school. It's enough stress as it is."

The school attempted to isolate the problem by closing holes where mice were believed to be entering. Traps were also set around the entire apartment. 

Buffalo State said that removing the mice from Moore Hall is a top priority for them as classes begin next month.
