Stanford University is reviewing its security procedures after a man was found living illegally on campus, the university said in a statement Tuesday.

According to Dee Mostofi, assistant vice president for external communications at the University of Northern California, the man “would have been on campus several times since December of last year,” but he was arrested on October 27.

The Stanford Daily, the university newspaper, identified the man as William Curry and he was named by the university as Mr. Curry.

According to the Stanford Daily, Curry “socialized with the other residents” and was regularly admitted to the dorms by some resident assistants. The newspaper obtained messages showing resident assistants trying to verify who was allowed to live in the dorm via lists.

While some discussions have taken place with some residence staff regarding Curry’s intrusions, “there has not been broad communication about him in all of the residence halls at Stanford,” Mostofi said.

The circumstances of the case, including “Curry’s perseverance and ability to have fun with our student community,” show flaws in protocols to prevent such incidents from happening, Mostofi said.

“We will immediately undertake a review to ensure that our procedures do not allow this type of incident to happen again,” she said.

CNN could not reach Curry for comment. He also declined the Stanford Daily’s request for a telephone interview, telling the paper “he did not directly dispute most of the facts of the investigation.”

According to Mostofi, the university’s public safety department obtained several letters of removal, a prerequisite for citing someone for trespassing on campus. But school officials couldn’t locate Curry until the most recent incident, and they served the letter on him then.

It is not known when the first incident occurred. CNN has contacted Stanford for clarification. CNN also reached out to student groups on campus.
