Professor Dumpster moves out

AUSTIN – The college professor who spent much of the last year living in an East Austin dumpster is moving out of his habitat.

Wednesday marked the one-year “Dumpsterversary” for Dr. Jeff Wilson, also known as Professor Dumpster.

He, or at times his students, spent the year living in the 33-square-foot dumpster on the campus of Huston-Tillotson University. The average home is more than 2,400 square feet.

Wilson added solar panels, electrical hook-ups and air conditioning to the space.

Even though he is moving out, Wilson said the dumpster will remain on campus.
