NEW YORK, March 29 (UPI) -- Four New York University freshmen reportedly have dismantled a secret marijuana den called "Narnia" that was entered through a hole in the back of a wardrobe.

By the time it was dismantled last week, hundreds of students allegedly had visited the den, crawling through a large hole carved in the back of a university-issued wardrobe placed to hide a doorway to an alcove, the New York Post reported Sunday.

The 10-by-8-foot alcove on the seventh floor of the Hayden Hall dormitory was decorated with Christmas lights, a set of bongos, a stuffed raven and a poster of Narnia's Prince Caspian, the Post reported.

Narnia is the kingdom in the C.S. Lewis novel "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," in which three children enter an enchanted land through an old wardrobe.

"NYU is an experimental community," said Joshua Lawrence Becker, 21, a junior. "I bet student morale will plummet now that (Narnia) is gone."

NYU officials are prohibited by law from discussing disciplinary measures against students but any student caught smoking marijuana risks being kicked out of residential housing, said NYU spokesman John Beckman.

Narnia was dismantled by the students when they heard school officials had become aware of it, the Post reported
